Everything You Need To Know About The 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Ready for Turkey Day SecretNYCers?

We’re only days away from the 90th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, where thousands of tourists and city dwellers alike will stand to watch the festive procession take place. What would thanksgiving be without novelty hot air balloons and lip syncing pop acts? Nothing. That’s what!

Given that this will be the 90th anniversary of the Macy’s parade, it will more than likely be more of a festive celebration that usual. So what does that mean to New Yorkers like us? Traffic-pocalypse.

Thankfully, the NYC Department of Transportation is prepared for our complaints and has released a list of Thanksgiving Day street closures.
