Balloons. Floats. Marching bands. Musical stars. The one and only Santa Claus. Start your holiday season with the 96th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, as the spectacle like no other streams down the streets of New York City — and on Peacock!
How to Stream the Parade
Viewers nationwide can livestream all the action from 9a to 12p ET on Peacock (or watch live on NBC). Sleeping in? Nice. You can replay the parade on Peacock through 3p ET.
What to Expect at the Parade
The 96th march of the world-famous parade will feature 15 giant character balloons, 28 floats, 36 novelty and heritage inflatables, more than 800 clowns, 10 marching bands and nine performance groups, a host of musical stars, and Santa. Yes, that Santa.
TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb will host the three-hour telecast for NBC and Peacock. And for the first time ever, spectators enjoying the parade on TV and on Peacock will experience several augmented reality effects throughout the show that will add another dose of magic.
Look for the Peacock Float
Keep an eye out for Peacock’s “Birds of a Feather Stream Together” float, featuring members of the cast from Peacock’s new Original series Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin.
Several years since we last saw him in the fan-favorite Pitch Perfect franchise, Adam Devine’s Bumper Allen moves to Germany to revive his music career when one of his songs goes viral. See a special performance from Devine, Sarah Hyland, and Flula Borg during the parade, and stream every episode of Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin only on Peacock.
What Else to Watch on Thanksgiving
Your holiday streams don’t stop when the parade route is over. Be sure to cheer on the good-est boys and girls as they compete in the National Dog Show, streaming at 12p ET. Plus, help yourself to a full serving of football, when the New England Patriots take on the Minnesota Vikings in a Thanksgiving night thriller, LIVE at 8p ET.
