City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

If you’re in New York for the holiday start your day off early at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Though it may seem a little cliché, the parade is free and it’s a great way to enjoy the fun of the city that we usually take for granted.

Start at 77th & Central Park West and follow the floats all the way down to 34th & 7th Ave. Floating through the city this year will be Snoopy, making his 6th appearance as a float, you can also find Spongebob Squarepants, Shrek and The Harajuku Lovers to name a few. Performances include everyone from Miley Cyrus to James Taylor.

So if you’ll be in the five boroughs for the holidays and need to get your nieces or nephews out of the house or need some fresh air after all of the prep for the big day, head over to the parade for a little Thanksgiving tradition.

What: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Where: Starts on 77th & Central Park West through 34th & 7th Avenue
When: Starts at 9am
