MACY'S THANKSGIVING PARADE
Macy's Thanksgiving Parade es una cabalgata anual que tiene lugar en Nueva York el Día de Acción de Gracias, el cuarto jueves de noviembre. Patrocinado por los grandes almacenes Macy's, este desfile de globos con personajes de dibujos animados, bandas de música y grupos de personas que vienen de todas las partes de EE.UU. recorre las calles de Broadway a la vez que se televisa a todo el país. En el desfile son típicas unas carrozas profusamente adornadas llamadas floats, en las que van montados cantantes famosos y estrellas de Broadway. A pesar de que se celebra el Día de Acción de Gracias, el tema del desfile es la Navidad y Santa Claus siempre va en la última carroza.
