Special, Live Events and Specials


A spectacle like no other returns this year as the "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" takes to the streets of New York City and ushers in the start of the holiday season. The 95th march of the world-famous parade will bring the nation together in celebration and 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 the one and only Santa Claus.

For decades, the "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" has been one of the nation's most anticipated and watched holiday celebrations. Viewers nationwide can catch all the action via the special broadcasts on NBC and Telemundo, from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. in all time zones, and for the first time fans can also livestream coverage on Peacock. Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker from "Today" will host the three-hour telecast for NBC and Peacock. NBC will air an encore of the parade from 2-5 p.m. ET. For the first time ever, spectators enjoying the parade on television and on Peacock will experience several whimsical augmented reality effects throughout the show that will add another dose of Macy’s magic to the spectacle.
