- For up-to-the-minute information, bookmark the parade’s home page!

- Among this year’s list of performers, I’m most intrigued to see Joan Jett’s attempted comeback (?!)
- Every year a few floats catch my attention – I didn’t recall seeing a Sea World float in the past when reviewing this year’s entries. Naturally, when I searched for the history, I found that this will be the first year and there is controversy around it from PETA. Moving on, quickly …
Do you try to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade each year? If so, what is your favorite part?
