Macy's Thanksgiving Parade is one of the Big Apple's most dynamic and colourful events, taking Thanksgiving celebrations one step further. The parade features marching bands, clowns and the Floats and Falloons, by far the day's biggest attraction. Towering over crowds, they are a Macy's hybrid of cold air balloons and floats. Famous characters include Angelina Ballerina, the Statue of Liberty, and Santa Claus. Starting on 77th Street, it proceeds down Central Park West to Columbus Circle, then down Broadway to Macy's at 34th Street, and finally finishing on Seventh Avenue. Good places to watch include Times Square and Columbus Circle.

Date: 26 November
