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!

    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 . . .

    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

    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!

    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.
