Every year since 1924, New York City has been graced by the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade — the quintessential start of the winter holiday season. It’s a strange and entertaining tradition where gigantic character balloons, clowns (definitely steer clear if this isn't your thing), floats, cheerleaders, and dancers march down the streets of midtown Manhattan.
But, if you can’t make the parade in person, or don't feel like standing outside in the cold (note: forecasted temperatures are in the 20s with strong winds), there are still plenty of ways to watch from the warm comforts of your own couch.
2018 marks the 92nd year of this holiday tradition which has featured countless big names in previous years. This year, in addition to floats and giant balloons, the performance lineup will feature Ella Mai, Leona Lewis, Diana Ross, John Legend, Rita Ora, and more.
Once again, Verizon’s YouTube channel will also offer a 360-degree livestream of the parade, hosted by Zuri Hall of E! and Keith Habersberger of Buzzfeed.
