Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays – mostly because it revolves around food. But we also love the Macy’s tradition of their annual Thanksgiving Day Parade!
Every year, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade brings the biggest and brightest stars to perform on some iconic floats surrounded by ginormous balloons of your favorite characters! This year, Macy’s tapped some of our favorite rising stars to join some big names for the parade.
