    About this event

    Enjoy unparalleled views of New York City's most famous parade from inside your room or outside along Central Park South where you and your loved ones will be gifted with holiday magic as the famous floats return in person.

    One of New York City's most famous events and the kickoff to the holiday season, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade typically draws millions of live spectators and more than 50 million home viewers. The parade route passes right by the front of the Essex House!

    Watch as balloons of Snoopy, Pikachu, SpongeBob and Smokey Bear—along with newcomers like Ada Twist, Scientist and Grogu (aka Baby Yoda)—take over the skies alongside ones by artists like Yayoi Kusama, while performers (including Mickey Guyton, Andy Grammer, Jon Batiste, Kelly Rowland and Kristin Chenoweth) and floats follow the route from Central Park West to Herald Square.
