The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which is one of the most well-known and well-attended parades in the United States, is about to begin now that Thanksgiving has arrived. Therefore, while you wait to begin your Black Friday shopping, you may relax and enjoy the entertainment in the meanwhile.
The Thanksgiving Day parade is my favorite aspect of the holiday; each year, I eagerly anticipate witnessing the floats, balloons, and acts that are held there. The traditional events that take place on Thanksgiving Day have been slightly reorganized to accommodate this year’s broadcast.
The parade will proceed in the same manner as it has in previous years, with the exception of an earlier start time (see below), which will be followed by some additional camera perspectives. It will include traditional parade elements, such as live performances by popular artists, floats, marching bands, and Broadway productions, among other things.
It will not be difficult at all to stream the parade, so if you are a fan like I am or if you are simply looking for something to do while you are preparing Thanksgiving dinner, you are in luck. Streaming the parade will not be difficult at all.
Here is all you need to know, whether of whether you plan to watch the celebrations live in New York City or from the convenience (and warmth) of your own home.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade begins at what time?
On Thursday, November 23, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time (5:30 a.m. Pacific Time), NBC will broadcast the 97th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. On Thanksgiving Day, an encore presentation of the Thanksgiving Day parade will be broadcast on NBC and Peacock at 2 p.m. Eastern Time (11 a.m. Pacific Time).
The parade will once again be presented by Today’s Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, and Al Roker, just like it was the year before. Performers will include Jon Batiste, Brandy, Chicago, En Vogue, and Ashley Park, along with the cast and Muppets of Sesame Street, Pentatonix, and a great deal of other artists.
The casts of ‘Romeo & Juliet,’ ‘Back to the Future: The Musical,’ ‘How to Dance in Ohio,’ ‘Shucked,’ and ‘Spamalot,’ in addition to the Radio City Rockettes, will perform for fans of Broadway shows.
Along with all of the acts and floats, some of the most popular balloons from previous years, such as Bluey, Grogu, and Pikachu, will be making a return to the parade this year. In addition, new balloons, such as Snoopy the Beagle Scout and Po from Kung Fu Panda, will be joining the line-up.
