World’s Longest Stage (Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade)

New York City’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1924 and has a 2.5 mile route. It has been called the “world’s greatest stage” and the “world’s longest stage.”

“Mark your calendars! We’re 10 days away from the 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Tune in to see the Rockford Bands perform on the world’s greatest stage” was posted on Twitter by Students On Broadway on November 13, 2017.

“In a normal year, its 2.5 mile route, also known as the world’s longest stage, would be lined with 3.5 million spectators” was posted on NY1 News on November 20, 2020.


Wikipedia: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, the world’s largest parade, is presented by the U.S. based department store chain Macy’s. The parade started in 1924, tying it for the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States with America’s Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit (with both parades being four years younger than Philadelphia’s Thanksgiving Day Parade). The three-hour parade is held in Manhattan, ending outside Macy’s Herald Square, and takes place from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thanksgiving Day, and has been televised nationally on NBC since 1953. Employees at Macy’s department stores have the option of marching in the parade.

Flashback Friday to when @rockfordbands took to the World’s Greatest Stage, here in NYC, during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2017. With all that is happening in the world, it is important for us all to remember that we have so much to be thankful for.

What to Expect of the 2020 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
By Frank DiLella and Spectrum News Staff Manhattan
PUBLISHED 7:55 AM ET Nov. 20, 2020
NEW YORK - Since 1924, the employees of Macy’s Department store have been putting on a Thanksgiving Day parade that takes place in the streets of New York City. This annual event has ballooned into a national celebration that, to many, marks the official start of the holiday season.
(...)
In a normal year, its 2.5 mile route, also known as the world’s longest stage, would be lined with 3.5 million spectators. But like so many things in 2020, modifications have to be made in order for this American classic to safely continue.
