Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of each November in the United States. The holiday is a celebration of the harvest, specifically the first one in the New World. Most Americans gather with their families to eat turkey and watch American football. In New York, Thanksgiving means the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Since 1924 balloons, floats, and performers have made the trek through Midtown Manhattan. The parade starts at 9 am at 77th Street and Central Park West. At Columbus Avenue, it turns onto Broadway making its way in front of Herald Square, finishing at 7th Avenue at noon. More than 3 million people come out for the parade each year, with more than 50 million tuning in to watch on television. Be sure to get there early to get a good vantage point.
