The iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is back for its 95th anniversary! This massive spectacle has stood the test of time, and even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade still took place in 2020 with a modified itinerary and no in-person viewing. This year we can expect to see the event return to some “normalcy”, although some restrictions are in place to keep everyone safe.
Macy’s Thanksgiving 2021 parade will kick off in the lower half of Central Park and travel to downtown Manhattan, before making its final stop outside Macy’s Herald Square. While some stops do not allow for in-person viewing, places such as the stretch from West 75th Street to West 61st Street will allow enthusiastic viewers to watch the parade parade through the city.
Despite the fact that this year’s parade will allow some lucky people to observe up close, we understand that many people would prefer to enjoy the event from the comfort of their own homes. No problem! The parade will be available to stream on cable TV as well as some of our favorite streaming services.
