November 28, 2016

Rockefeller center tree
The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree will be lit for the first time this Wednesday. There will be live performances during the ceremony from 7-9pm. Of course it's difficult to get to and the crowds will be huge. It will also be televised for those who don't want to face the crowds. If you can't make it to see the tree on Wednesday, don't worry, it will remain lit until January 7 at 9pm. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Day Parade and Balloon Inflation

November 18, 2016

Rsz_thanksgiving

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!
