Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade will celebrate 91 years tomorrow and is expected to draw millions to the streets of Manhattan to watch it travel on a nearly three-mile route from 77th and Central Park West to Macy’s flagship store in Herald Square. Along with a slew of giant cartoon character balloons, the parade will also feature music and theatrical superstars. Check out the performers expected to appear in Thursday’s extravagant lineup.
98 Degrees – The boy band have made a triumphant return with their holiday album Let It Snow, so you can expect to hear them perform a traditional tune off the LP. They have a busy few weeks ahead this holiday season with their 98° At Christmas Tour, which runs through December 23.
Andy Grammer — The “Fresh Eyes” singer will make an appearance at the parade just days before his new album The Good Parts is released. Grammer is expected to promote the album on tour next spring, announcing nearly two dozen tour dates earlier this month.
Cam – After spending most of this year on the road, country star Cam continues to hit the performance circuit. After appearing at the parade, she has shows scheduled through December.
Goo Goo Dolls – Alt. rockers the Goo Goo Dolls wrapped up their “Long Way Home” tour just a few months ago, but they’re back in the spotlight to appear in Macy’s holiday tradition.
Smokey Robinson – The Motown legend, now 77, continues to perform regularly and will help get viewers in the festive spirit when he appears in the parade.
Sabrina Carpenter – The Macy’s parade is just one of many holiday performances on Carpenter’s itinerary. She is also set to appear at Chicago’s B96 Pepsi Jingle Bash and an Acoustic Christmas with Fall Out Boy and MAX.
Broadway stars set to perform include the cast of Tony-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen, Anastasia, Once on This Island, and Spongebob Squarepants – The Musical. As always, the world-famous Radio City Rockettes will perform a number from their Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
The 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade airs on NBC at 9:00 AM EST.
