Thanksgiving Day Parade & Balloon Inflation

November 23, 2015


If you're in New York City during Thanksgiving the Macy's Parade is a must for some. If you want a behind-the-scenes look you can watch the balloons being inflated from 3pm-10pm near the Natural History Museum on Wednesday. 

You can view the parade live on Thursday anywhere along the route. The parade starts at 77th and Central Park West and follows the park south. Once getting to the bottom of the park the parade continues down 6th Avenue until finally reaching Macy's in Herald Square. The parade starts around 9am, but it's best to get there earlier for better viewing. Enjoy!
