The largest parade in the world, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, takes place every year in New York City. The parade began in 1924, linking it to the American Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit, the second oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States (both of which are four years younger than the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade). The three-hour parade takes place in Manhattan, ends outside Macy’s Herald Square and runs from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thanksgiving Day, and has been televised nationally on NBC since 1953. There is an option to march in the parade, employees of Macy’s department store. Watch Live on FuboTV.

The history of the first direction:
Store staff marched to Macy’s Herald School, the 34th highest starter flagship store, in 1924, wearing imaginative clothing. Floats were kept from the Central Park Zoo, where there were bands and live animals. The Bird of that first parade in Santa Claus became a welcoming citizen in Herald Square. Santa was enthroned in this first parade on Macy’s porch at the entrance to the 34th Street Store, where he was presented with the “King of Kids” crown. With more than 250,000 listeners accompanying him, the parade was such a success that Macy’s announced it would become an annual event, although the media only showed the first parade.
