Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats make us hungry for feast


For 95 years, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been a tradition in New York City. While Universal Orlando gives a taste of these epic balloons in its holiday parades, the iconic holiday event is one that millions of people watch both in person and via screen. While some iconic characters will always be a part of the festivities, the food floats at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade have many hungry for the feast to come.

Year after year, the annual Thanksgiving Show has many people applauding for their favorite holiday traditions. From brilliant performers to panoramic views, the reality is that everyone is thankful to see the holiday parade pass through the streets of New York City.

As the parade rises again, there are both new and favorite floats that often create a craving for food. From old favorites back to some new designs, this bold visual seems to be rumbling people’s stomachs.

Of course, the Jennie-O Turkey exhibits the iconic poultry. Favorite float shines again and reminds everyone to put this turkey in the oven.

With everyone sharing their love of this green bean casserole, the Green Giant float reminds everyone to enjoy a veg or two with all that stuffing and buns. Even though Kermit says being green isn’t easy, an extra serving of veg can put you on Santa’s beautiful list.

For home cooks who might need to save some food, the Cracker Barrel Home Sweet Home Float is a reminder that the local restaurant is open on Thanksgiving Day. Ready to serve a delicious turkey dinner, no one will have to worry about being hungry while on vacation.

Entenmann’s makes delicious treats with its bakery float. Even though this holiday pie has a soggy bottom, Entenmann’s can come to the rescue with a plethora of sugary treats. Sometimes the best holiday gift is one that requires minimal effort.

Kinder brings additional joy to the parade route. As the Ferris wheel spins, the wonder and joy of all the goodness of chocolate makes everyone smile.

And, not every Thanksgiving feast is complete without the gravy. Heinz and his great sauce adventure invite themselves on the parade route. It’s a reminder that food can be an adventure both on and off the table.

These Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade food floats will make everyone feel grateful that the holiday tradition has returned to the streets of New York City.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will air from 9 a.m. ET and continue until noon in all time zones.
