Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is returning to the streets of New York in 2021. Find out what time will the event start.

Will Coss, the executive producer of the event revealed in September 2021 that the annual spectacle will be “closer to its original form” this year.

The 2020 version of the parade was a television-only event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are thrilled to welcome back in its full form the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a world-renowned celebration that ushers in the magic of being in New York City during the holiday season,” the New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a press release.
