Parade – Thursday, November 27, 2014, 9am-12pm
Balloon Set Up – November 26th, 3-10pm
Floats, Clowns, Balloons, Celebrities, Santa Claus and so much more. This is what Thanksgiving is all about in Manhattan. The 2014 Thanksgiving Parade route starts on Central Park West and 77th Street, marches South on Central Park West (CPW) to Columbus Circle, turns east on Central Park South and South on 6th Avenue to Macy’s at 34th Street at Herald Square. The new route offers over 2 miles of spectator viewing options.
Balloon Set Up – This can actually be as much fun as the Parade itself and many of us have stood outside with Hot Chocolate and watched the Parade balloons being blown up. The set up takes place on either side of the American Museum of Natural History, on 77th and 81st Sts between CPW and Columbus from 3-10 pm on Wednesday, November 26th.
