Star-studded lineup set for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade will celebrate 90 years tomorrow as million of Americans prepare to feast on turkeys, potatoes and stuffing. Over 10,000 volunteers and performers will participate in this year’s parade, which kicks off per usual at 77th Street and Central Park West, and travels through Manhattan on a nearly three-mile route before wrapping up in front of Macy’s flagship store on Herald Square. Check out the performers expected to appear in Thursday’s extravagant lineup.
