We are just a few days away from Thanksgiving, and one of the best parts about Thanksgiving — for me, at least — is watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This year is one you won’t want to miss; it’s the 90th anniversary of the parade! It is so nice to come downstairs Thanksgiving morning and watch the parade while all the delicious food is cooking.
Some people, however, may feel that it is the same every year. While I can agree that much of the parade is the same from year-to-year, Macy’s adds in different performers, balloons and floats every year. Some new balloons we can expect to see this year are: DreamWorks Trolls, Charlie Brown (second version), Greg Heffley (second version), Trixie the Dog and Felix the Cat (second version).
In addition to some new balloons (along with some old favorites, of course), we can also expect to see a variety of performers. Some performers this year include Tony Bennett, Regina Spektor, Long Island hip-hop group De La Soul, Kelsea Ballerina and many more! There will also be some headlining guests making an appearance this year including Olympic gold medalists Laurie Hernandez and Michelle Carter, and former Rangers stars Adam Graves and Eric Lindros.
Lastly, some new floats you can expect to see this year, such as Girl Scouts’ Building a Better World, Kings Hawaiian Alohan Spirit, Krazy Clue’s Fun House and Balsam Hill’s Oh Christmas Tree.
As you can see, there are a ton of new balloons, performers, guests and floats to look forward to this year, along with some returning old favorites of course. So be sure to tune in Thanksgiving morning for the 90th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
