5 Tips for Watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade LIVE

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 . . .
  • Don’t Be Late! 2 of 5
    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.
  • Bundle Up! 3 of 5
    Bundle Up!
    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!
  • After the Parade: Who’s Going to Carve the Roast Beast? 5 of 5
    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.
