Perhaps one of the most beloved Thanksgiving Day traditions is the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and this year’s celebration boasted no shortage of superstar country performances. Kane Brown, Carly Pearce, Sugarland, Martina McBride, and Tegan Marie all headed to NYC to take a ride and perform on the famous route.
Brown rode on the float “Mount Rushmore’s American Pride” from the South Dakota Department of Tourism, while Pearce rode on the “Harvest in the Valley” float from Green Giant. McBride rode Balsam Hill’s “Deck the Halls” float while Sugarland was atop The Cranberry Cooperative float from Ocean Spray. Also appearing on the parade route performing this year were John Legend, Diana Ross and her family, Leona Lewis, Pentatonix and more.
Among the new floats to brigade this year were the sweet “Fantasy Chocolate Factory” from Kinder, “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” from Nickelodeon, “Santa’s Saint Bernards Save Christmas” from Elf Pets and the Elf on the Shelf, and a brand new “Tom Turkey” float from Macy’s, a redesign of the longest-running title float in the parade’s history.
