2022 is coming to an end with just two short months left. Can you believe it?! Lucky for all of us, the upcoming season is the best one yet, with so much to look forward to. One of those things is Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! So many of us grew up watching this exciting, iconic event every year, and it’s become something we hold near and dear to our hearts. Whether watching the parade is a tradition for you or you’re tuning in for the first time, we are going to tell you everything you need to know to get set for the pre-food preparation morning viewing.


Macy’s 96th Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade will begin at 9:00 AM and will end at 12:00 PM (in all time zones) on Thursday, November 24th. Start the morning off right by tuning in and letting the festivities begin!

Where to Watch

Now, you may be asking yourself where you can watch the parade. Your answer: Sling TV. FYI, a Sling TV subscription is actually more affordable than most cable tv providers *wink wink*.

Balloon Floats

Let’s be real… Another main reason we all tune in to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the GIANT, adorable balloon floats that fill the streets! This year, four new balloons will be joining the parade. You can look forward to seeing Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Abrams Books, Stuart the Minion from Illumination, Bluey by BBC, and DINO and Baby DINO by Sinclair Oil. Tune in on November 24th to discover which balloon float is your personal favorite.
