Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade 2018 Route
While some of us will be prepping meals or writing a Black Friday shopping list, others are anticipating the biggest parade of the year.
MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 22, 2018
9AM - NOON EST
Know before you go:
To secure your spot, we advise that you wake up bright and early! And by early we mean 2 am so you can be at the parade by 4 am.
Take the train or subway to get around. No Taxi's, Lyft's or Uber's will be able to help you and there is no parking.
There are no port-o-potty's so go to a McDonald's or any other fast food place.
It's going to be freezing so bring snacks, water bottles, a canteen if you must and wear warm clothing and shoes.
The best place to grab real food is with a street vendor. Cash only and yes, street meat is safe to eat!
