This year’s Thanksgiving Parade is going to be on Thursday, November 24th. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is an annual parade in New York City by the U.S department store chain Macy’s. The parade first took place in 1924, making it the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the US with America’s other Thanksgiving parade in Detroit. You can stream the parade on NBC. It starts at 9am and ends at noon. The parade begins at 77th Street and Central Park West but people are not allowed to view the parade at the official start area. Public viewing areas officially start at 72th street.

Besides watching the Thanksgiving Parade, what are some other traditions that you and your family partake in? Do you have a big Thanksgiving meal with Turkey? Do you watch football with your family? Do you all come together as a family and share what you’re most thankful for? There are so many traditions that people all over the country participate in to celebrate this holiday. As a school, we have a tradition that we participate in each year which is the Thanksgiving Food Drive. This year, many students participated in the drive by donating cans or boxes of food such as beans, canned vegetables, pasta, and Mac and cheese. The donations go to people in need and they are very thankful for everyone’s donations. The food drive is a great way to help the community and it makes Thanksgiving enjoyable for everyone. In conclusion, you should find a way to get involved to get into the Thanksgiving spirit!
