    The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is back to its traditional parade route this year after its truncated show in 2020. Families who missed seeing the crowds and festivities last year can look forward to new floats and balloons joining the classics. Since 2021 is the parade’s 95th year, the return to form is reassuring for fans of the long-running event.

    “We’ve got a full show: 10 marching bands, 15 giant character balloons, 28 floats, 30-plus heritage balloons, and a whole host of performances,” executive producer Will Coss told Weekend TODAY. “Really excited to be back in full form.”
