What better way to spend the morning of Thanksgiving than to relax around the TV with friends and family and watch the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day parade. Or perhaps you’re planning to have it on in the background while you’re getting the turkey in the oven. Read on for some details about this year’s broadcast!

My father’s a big fan of the marching bands. I’ve always been partial to the balloons and the Broadway performances. I’m definitely looking forward to the Elf performance at this year’s parade.
