The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is tied as the second-oldest parade in the United States. This parade is a tradition that many witness in person and many more embrace at their homes with loved ones at the start of the holiday season. Having your Marching Band march through The Big Apple during the New York’s world-famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a major accomplishment for any Band Director and his/her band. Band directors need to apply years in advance and submit an application video to the Macy’s Band Selection Committee. The decisions are made by early May. The parade will be broadcasted on NBC. During a band’s visit, the group could also attend a Show on Broadway, a cruise to the Statue of Liberty or see performances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, or Radio City Music Hall and take in some shopping and some of the greatest food around.
