The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is an annual parade presented by Macy's, a chain of department stores across the United States. The tradition started in 1927, tying it for the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States along with America's Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit, and four years younger than the 6abc IKEA Thanksgiving Day Parade in Philadelphia. The three-hour event is held in New York City starting at 9:00 a.m. EST on Thanksgiving Day.

The parade features large animal-shaped balloons, often famous cartoon characters, floats, live music and other performances. College and high school marching bands from across the country participate in the parade, and the television broadcasts feature performances by famous singers and bands.
