Ever thought of watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade live? Do it! I just watched it for the first time this year and it completely exceeded my expectations. And mine were high! Here’s 5 things I learned my first time watching it.
I hope to see your there next year! I can’t wait to do it again!
Choose Your Side
We like the park side of the street because it's not as crowded. Reason?People can't cross the street after a certain time. Which brings me to the next tip . . .
Don’t Be Late!
Your whole party has meet you by 7:15am. The police WON'T let you cross over to the park side after that.
I wore two sweaters, a huge jacket, a scarf, hat, and gloves. BUT I forgot about my feet. My toes froze! Next time I'm wearing winter boots.
I love these boots from Zappos
A Little Help from Your Friends
The bigger your group the better! It makes it a party. Someone in our group even brought small tent. The kids played in it until it was disassembled minutes before the parade. So fun!
After the Parade: Who’s Going to Carve the Roast Beast?
Not you! Don't expect to have the energy to cook a Thanksgiving meal after the parade. We were exhausted. We got home at 12:30pm, took long naps, and went over to our cousin's house in Harlem at 5pm. The timing was perfect. I would suggest either going to a friends house for a late dinner or going to a restaurant.
