NEW YORK (77WABC) — The 96th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade is returning to the streets of New York City.
Last year’s celebration returned to pre-pandemic form after 2020’s event was made for TV only. This year’s parade will include thousands of marchers, floats, new characters, marching bands, celebrities and more capping off with Santa’s arrival.
The 2022 Thanksgiving Day parade will step off from Central Park West and 77th street at 9 a.m. Thursday. The 2.5-mile procession marches south to Columbus Circle, turns East onto Central Park South, and proceeds South on 6th Avenue to West 34th street.
It then turns West and ends at 7th Avenue, in front of Macy’s Herald Square.
