The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
Thanksgiving in New York is synonymous to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade will take place on the 22nd of November and will kick off at 9 am. You could enjoy the parade from the comfort of your home on television, but actually being there in person is an entirely different experience. You will be thrilled by the marching bands, the magnificent floats, vibrant dance troupes, helium balloons, and celebrity guest appearances. The parade is set to start at Central Park West and trace Central Park in a 2.5-mile path that finds its way at 6th Avenue before ending up at 34th Street, where Macy’s has its flagship department store. The best views are on a first come, first served basis, so plan to arrive early if you want a front-row spot.
Black Friday Deals
The holiday season is undeniably upon us and, as is tradition, you probably plan on purchasing a few gifts for your loved ones. If so, this may be the perfect time to purchase those gifts; get the best offers at various retail outlets around the city during the Black Friday flash sale that is quite frankly, jaw-dropping. Plan to tour the city on the 23rd of November, brave the masses that will have flooded your favorite retail outlets, and enjoy the best prices on all items. Most stores extend their offers throughout the weekend but missing the actual Black Friday could mean that most items will have sold out, so capitalize on the day itself just to be safe.
Head over to the House of Yes along Wyckoff Avenue in Brooklyn on the 23rd of November and enjoy an exciting night of song and dance. Dress up as a unicorn and mingle with other mystical creatures from 10 pm till late. You will get to enjoy music from acts such as Whitney Fierce and Icarus throughout the night. Tickets to this musical event go for only $30 per head.
