Accompanied by marching bands, floats, and falloons (a term that the Macy’s Parade Studio coined for a float with a balloon character on it) Delta will proudly fly through the streets of New York City tomorrow as the official airline sponsor of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Tune in to see us on the Statue of Liberty float during NBC’s telecast around 11:20 a.m.
For our friends in New York City, the parade will start on 77th St and proceed down Central Park West to Columbus Circle, then down Broadway to Macy’s at 34th St, finishing on 7th Ave (see map here). I’ve heard the best spots to watch are at Columbus Circle and Times Square, or at Central Park West, between 66th and 77th Streets. Be sure to check out The Traveling Mamas’ tips for best viewing the parade.
In Detroit, we’re also sponsoring America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Our float, “The Good Ship Lollipop,” will be sailing down Woodward Avenue beginning at 9:20 a.m. CT. Local TV coverage on WDIV Channel 4 starts at 10 a.m if you want to check it out between bites of pumpkin pie!
Will you look for Delta at the parades this year?
