For 91 years, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has been the official kick-off to the holiday season! Every year, this Emmy Award winning tradition is seen by more than 3.5 million people in New York and 50 million people at home, all tuned in to see giant balloons, one-of-a-kind floats, amazing performances and much, much more.
Stay tuned for announcements about this year's featured performers. They'll be accompanied by some of the finest marching bands and performance groups in the US. Tune in for your favorite floats or go see them in person!
Gather fall leaves, cones, pods and seed heads. Weave them together with other materials from the gardens and meadows to create a decorative wall hanging celebrating the bounty and beauty of the season.
Free, and admission to the grounds is free until noon.
