Thanksgiving Is Saved! Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Is Back To Normal
A Thanksgiving Day Tradition is back in full force
The 95th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be back this year and better than before. Last year because of the pandemic the 2 1/2 mile parade route was shortened down to just one block and no spectators were allowed.
What's Happening This Year
This year the parade will travel 2 1/2 miles through Manhatten. It will feature 15 giant character balloons, 28 floats, 36 novelty and heritage inflatables, more than 800 clowns, 10 marching bands and nine performance groups, and everyone's favorite jolly guy Santa Claus.
Floats and Celebrities You Will See
There will be new floats led by the cast of “Girls5eva”, Sara Bareilles, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Paula Pell, and Busy Philipps, Nelly, and Jordan Fisher, And Jon Batiste will be on an alligator-themed float celebrating Louisiana’s music, food, and culture.

I'm hoping that having a year off won't cause any issues with the balloon handlers.
We don't want another Barney balloon incident as we had in 2007.
