Get your Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade jet charter scheduled to be one of the 3.5 million parade-goers to flock to the streets of New York City this year! While the parade begins at 9 am, many of those in attendance will want to get to the best viewing spots early (around 6 am) or make their way to the city a full day in advance to watch the colorful balloons being filled outside the American Museum of Natural History. No matter which festivities you will be taking part in, making your reservation to the world’s largest parade early is crucial.
Three hours is how long the parade lasts which isn’t surprising given the fact that more than 1,500 dancers and cheerleaders, 1,000 clowns, and 30 parade floats have been participating in the event year after year. This year will mark the 92nd year the parade has taken place in its path down the streets nearest to Central Park towards Macy’s Herald Square. But don’t worry, Flex Air Charters will get you there in plenty of time to pick the perfect viewing area for the parade and then some.
Speaking of viewing areas these are the best as voted by past attendees:
Central Park West: This is where the parade typically kicks off along 75th at 9am. If you are concerned about being in the cold for long or have little ones who will be sensitive to being outside, this is the prime spot to see the parade where it starts.
Columbus Circle: This is the best indoor viewing area at the Shops at Columbus Circle. From the second or third levels, you can get an up-close view of the balloons while staying warm during the parade. The only downside to this is that you won’t be able to hear the performers.
Sixth Avenue: If you want to enjoy a few extra z’s, this spot sees the parade right around 9:30 but gives you similar views as Central Park West.
