Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Proves to be Stuffed with Entertainment

The 90th Annual Macy’s Day Parade, held in New York City, New York, once again received extremely positive rating, reviews, and attendance. The parade showcased various performances from smaller high school bands to famous singers to start off the holiday season.

Talented performers were showcased in the event, such as the world famous Rockettes. The famous dance company from New York brought holiday spirit to the parade with their festive dance routine. The dancers were completely in sync the entire performance including during the famous can-can line.

Unlike the Rockettes, a few singers struggled to match up to the music, including pop singer Daya. Daya performed but did not sing her song “Words”. Coincidentally as soon as the audience began to notice the mistake, the camera crew panned out to dancers to draw attention away from the singer. During most performances the singer was rarely zoomed in on fully, or there was a large microphone that blocked their whole mouth from the view of the camera.

The parade once again featured many floats and balloons of famous intellectual properties. Characters from shows like Sesame Street and Peanuts appeared in the parade as well.

Not only a sense of holiday spirit was spread through the parade but a sense of community as well. As is tradition, small town bands were showcased from all over the country, showing off the talents of everyday people in America. Parade participant from Joe E. Newsome High School in Lithia, Florida, Shayla Lucey, expressed her gratitude for the organization including small town bands in the parade. “Even during the 3am rehearsal I loved every moment of it. The crowd was amazing and interactive and the parade was wonderful, we can’t thank them enough” she said.
