Trace Adkins will be spending his Thanksgiving in New York City. He’s scheduled to perform during the 86th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade which airs live on NBC on Thanksgiving Day, November 22, at 9a|8c. Other performers include Carly Rae Jepsen, Flo Rida, The Wanted, Karmin, Neon Trees, Cody Simpson, Jimmy Fallon The Roots, Jennette McCurdy, Chris Isaak and Don McLean.
“The 86th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will again make history as it debuts three impressive giant balloons, six over-the-top floats, an amazing array of talent and the most remarkable high school, college and professional marching bands in the nation,” Amy Kule, executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, said.
The parade will be one of New York City’s first major events following Hurricane Sandy. “As it has during turbulent times in our history, we hope the Macy’s Parade serves as a beacon of hope and renewal for all Americans, who will gather with friends and family to give thanks this season and begin to heal from the devastating aftermath of Superstorm Sandy,” Amy Kule said.
The Macy’s Pardade has marked the beginning of the holiday season since 1924. This year’s line up includes 16 giant character balloons, 40 novelty/ornament balloons, balloonicles, balloonheads and trycaloons, 28 floats, 1,600 cheerleaders and dancers, 900 clowns, 11 marching bands, celebrity performers and the one-and-only Santa Claus.
