The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is held on Thanksgiving morning. The parade is held in New York City. It starts out at 77th street and Central Park, the parade then makes its way to Macy’s in Herald Square (which is the original Macy’s store).
You can watch the parade being televised on NBC. The parade starts at approximately 9am. If you want to get a good viewing of the parade, I suggest getting there at around 6:30am. Click here to see a map of the parade route.
New York Magazine has a good article if you are interested in attending the parade. It gives information and tips about attending the parade.
