Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
Thursday, November 28, 2013
In 2013 the 84rd Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be held on Thursday, November 28th from 9am to noon. The parade is FREE, so find a spot along the parade route early! In order to get a good viewing spot we suggest you arrive before 8:00am to stake your place along the route. If you are really serious about being in the front row, consider arriving before 7:00am. The average morning temperature at this time of year here in New York is about 40 degrees (5 degrees Celsius) and it goes without saying that you should be sure to wear warm clothes, ideally in layers that you can remove as the day warms up. It is a good idea to bring a thermos full of something warm. The parade begins at 9:00am at 77th Street and Central Park West and snakes its way down to Macy's flagship department store at Herald Square, 34th Street and 6th Ave. The entire parade lasts about three to four hours. However, the duration of the parade for spectators will depend on where you view it from: near the beginning of the route, it will last about 1 1/2 hours, closer to Macy's, the parade will last closer to 3 hours.

The Big Balloon Inflation!
