7 Must-See Moments From the 2019 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

It’s a wrap on the 2019 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade, first held in 1924, has been a cornerstone of Thanksgiving celebrations for nearly 100 years; every year, thousands march down closed-down streets in Manhattan to participate in the festivities, which include musical performances, celebrity appearances, and dozens of elaborate, larger-than-life floats. The 93rd installment of the annual parade, which kicked off in New York City early this morning, was nearly scaled down due to strong winds. Fortunately, parade-goers forged on and made this year’s Thanksgiving Day Parade another one for the books. If you were too busy cooking to catch the festivities live, don’t stress — we rounded up the best moments from this year’s parade below. Happy Thanksgiving!
