The holiday has arrived, NBC is all set to launch its annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Before the event goes live on Thursday, November 26, the Peacock has given a preview of what to expect this year including a glimpse of the turkey float, Uncle Sam balloon as well as Santa and his elves on the sled.
In its 83rd year, the parade will be hosted by Meredith Vieira, Matt Lauer and Al Roker. The moving troupe will take a new route this year, moving stages down the historic Broadway route beginning at 77th Street and Central Park West. "Dramatic changes in the mid-town landscape will divert us for the first time from the fabled Broadway route we have followed since our first Parade in 1924," Exec Prod Robin Hall said.
