Today was the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade that made its way down from Central Park West to Herald Square this morning in NYC. In additions to all the balloons, marching bands, and floats, there were many musical performers, including the cast of CATS on Broadway, De La Soul, Regina Spektor, Sarah McLachlan, and 90 year old Tony Bennet who sang with Miss Piggy. (The rest of the Muppets were there, too.) There were protesters, as well, most of whom were protesting the Dakota pipeline. The NBC telecast also included a scene from the upcoming NBC live Hairspray musical special (with Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Billy Eichner, Harvey Fierstein & more)

Photos from the parade are in the gallery above.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
