Journey to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

It’s an iconic American holiday tradition like fireworks on the Fourth of July, trick or treating on Halloween or hunting for Easter eggs.  Every year on Thanksgiving Day before the family gathers around the table for a celebratory feast, all eyes are on the Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. 

For 86 years, this parade signifies the official start of the holiday season, but what does it really take to be a part of America’s favorite pastime? We’ll find out in WLRN’s latest production, "Journey to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade."  Viewers will also get a rare behind the scenes look at the making of such a monumental parade.  Through interviews with fans, participants and Macy’s staff, WLRN will give you a rare inside scoop to this magical event.
