With Thanksgiving coming up this Thursday, there are tons of different turkey day traditions all across the country including the hugely popular and obviously well known Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Then there are the lesser know traditions such as Foods and Feasts of Colonial Virginia. We can’t forget the Turkey Trots, Black Friday, football and more football!
Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
For 85 years this parade has been the kick-off to the holiday season. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a uniquely American entertainment extravaganza. Over three million people line the streets of New York to see floats, the world famous balloons, top notch high school and college bands, youth performance groups and top name stars.
The balloon inflation takes place the day before and the public is invited to view this from 3 to 10 pm.
