Now that Halloween is officially over, it’s time to focus our attention on the next holiday: Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving comes with a lot of great things — big feasts, yummy food, family time, and of course, the annual Macy’s Day Parade! The lineup was just released for this year’s and we could not be more excited.
The 92nd Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be broadcasted on NBC on Thursday, Nov. 22, 2018 live from New York City at 9 a.m. Today Show’s Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, and Al Roker will be hosting the epic, three-hour broadcast.
The performers this year are some of the best it’s ever had, including Ally Brooke, Jack & Jack, Ashley Tisdale, Mackenzie Ziegler, and Johnny Orlando! John Legend, Leona Lewis, the vocal group Pentatonix, Bad Bunny, Barenaked Ladies, Bazzi, Kane Brown, Brynn Cartelli, Ella Mai, Tony winner Anika Noni Rose and the Muppets of Sesame Street, Tegan Marie, Martina McBride, Rita Ora, Carly Pearce, Diana Ross with her children and extended family (including Rhonda Ross, Tracee Ellis Ross, Chudney Ross, Ross Naess, and Evan Ross with wife Ashlee Simpson-Ross), and Sugarland are also set to perform on top of the 26 floats.
The parade will also feature performances from the casts of the Broadway shows Mean Girls, My Fair Lady, The Prom, and Summer: The Donna Summer Musical. The iconic Radio City Rockettes will also make an appearance.
Not only are there tons of new performers this year, but there’s new balloons too! Some floats making their debut on Thanksgiving include a giant character balloon of Goku, the star of Dragon Ball Super: Broly, a few elves from Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles, and Sunny the Snowpal — a new Macy’s seasonal character.
In case you forgot, last years parade was pretty epic too. It included performances by Sabrina Carpenter, Bebe Rexha, Jojo Swia, and Olivia Holt, but we think they’ve definitely outdone themselves this year.
