I've gotten quite a few emails since Hurricane Sandy asking me if the Thanksgiving Parade is still happening. I didn't want to respond until I had definitive information, but I've heard back and the parade will be stepping off as planned next Thursday, November 22, 2012. Just over a week way, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is a spectacular event and a really special way to celebrate Thanksgiving. Seeing the balloons, bands and floats in person is a really special experience, but even if you can't be here in person, you can enjoy the parade when it airs live on NBC.
