Over 3 million people will line the streets of New York for the eagerly anticipated Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 28th. Online travel agent Globehunters will be providing cheap flights to New York from the UK, perfect for anyone eager to experience the parade for themselves.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been an annual event since 1924 and will once again wow the crowds with an array of oversized balloons and awe-inspiring floats. Another 50 million people are expected to watch the spectacle live on television and NBC will be providing live coverage of the event in the US.

Recent celebrity appearances at the parade have included Kylie Minogue, Kanye West and Flo Rida. This year there will be over 24 floats, 15 helium balloons as well as 1,500 cheerleaders involved in the parade, full details of which will be released in the final week of October.

Seaworld’s ‘A Sea of Surprises’ is the first float of the 2013 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to be announced. This is Seaworld’s first contribution to the parade which has featured famous characters such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Ronald MacDonald and Spider-Man in recent years.

The Orlando theme park’s float will feature all sorts of aquatic creations including sea turtles, penguins and tropical fish. Taking centre stage on the 32 foot long float will be ‘Shamu’ – a tribute to Seaworld’s famous killer whale which will stand at over 27 feet tall. The float’s journey through central New York will culminate in a live performance from a mystery performer outside Macy’s flagship store.

The three hour parade will wind its way along a two mile route in the centre of New York, beginning at 77th Street and Central Park West, then moving down to Columbus Circle. After passing through Central Park South and traversing 6th Avenue and 34th Street, the parade will finish in front of Macy's Herald Square around midday.
