Watching the mega-sized balloons, decked-out floats, and live performances firsthand? A whole other experience, and one that’s thrillingly easy to pull off when you call the Edge Hotel up in Washington Heights your Big Apple headquarters.

The 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

This year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade kicks off at 9 AM on Thursday, November 22nd, so book your boutique guest room at the Edge Hotel for the occasion today so you’re all set! You’ve got 2.5 miles of public-viewing opportunities along the parade route, which runs from West 77th Street and Central Park West south to Macy’s Herald Square.

The defining feature of the procession is the lineup of enormous balloons drifting through the urban canyons of Manhattan, from Charlie Brown and the Pillsbury Doughboy to Sinclair’s Dino and the Nutcracker—with new character introductions every year. Then there are the lavish floats, the elite marching bands from all across the country showing off their moves and their sounds, and the lineup of dancers, singers, and other live performers—including the various Broadway casts always featured.
