Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

November 24, 1927

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is an annual parade presented by the U.S. chain store business Macy’s. The tradition started in 1924, tying it for the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States along with America’s Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit, with both parades four years younger than the 6abc Dunkin’ Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade in Philadelphia. The three-hour Macy’s event is held in New York City starting at 9:00 a.m. EST on Thanksgiving Day.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will also be streaming on Peacock beginning at 9 a.m.
