After a year with no spectators lining the streets, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade returns on November 26 in full with fans lining the parade route, bands, clowns, giant balloons, and live performances.

Broadway is also back and will join in on the festivities with appearances from the casts of “Moulin Rouge!”, “Six”, “Wicked”, and the upcoming “Annie Live!”.

Kristen Chenowwth, Darren Criss, Jordan Fisher, The Rockettes, Ballet Hispanico, and the cast of “Girls5Eva” will also be performing along the parade route.

This year a new balloon will join the more than a dozen high flying characters with Baby Yoda.  Fans can watch the inaugural inflation of Baby Yoda near the Museum of Natural History.  All visitors must show proof of vaccination in order to watch the inflation process.
