The 2021 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Francesco Gerardi, Writer

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is back and bigger than ever!

Last year, bystanders of the parade were not permitted and the parade was noticeably smaller to accommodate COVID-19 protocols. This year there are multiple new balloons, new floats, marching bands, performances, and so much more!

The 2021 parade is said to feature 15 balloons, 28 floats, 10 marching bands, musical performances, and SANTA! Several Broadway casts will be there as well as the Rockettes.

The 95th annual parade will take place on NBC at 9 a.m. and it will last until noon. It is also available to watch live or at any time on the streaming platform Peacock. Additionally, CBS will host their own version of the parade starting at 9 a.m. as well.

Happy Thanksgiving!
