Watch The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2017 Live Stream from the comfort of home. In less than 24 hours, the 2017 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be under way, bringing giant character balloons, floats, live performances, and more to Midtown.
It is estimated that around 3.5 million people head to Manhattan each year to watch the festive event unfold as it travels down 77th Street and Central Park West, before ending in Midtown in front of Macy’s Herald Square on 34th Street.
Macy’s has put out a map of recommended places to watch, but if you’d much rather enjoy the parade from the comforts of your home and not sandwiched between a swarm of people, there are several ways in which you can do so.
You can’t talk about Thanksgiving without talking about the Thanksgiving Day Parade. If you want to tune in to this once-a-year spectacle—and you do—be sure to watch NBC at 9 a.m. Thursday, no matter what time zone you’re in.
The broadcast will go until 12 p.m., and will be hosted by the TODAY show’s Al Roker, Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer. If you prefer to watch it in Spanish, Telemundo has you covered with a Spanish-language broadcast of the parade featuring Jessica Carrillo, Carlos Ponce and Karim Mendiburu as hosts.
The parade was established in 1924 and is set to bring in about 3.5 million spectators out to the parade route, according to Macy’s. If you don’t have a TV to gather around with your family, you can watch it on the NBC New York live stream. According to Curbed New York, Verizon will also be livestreaming the parade on its YouTube page.
