The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade returned to the streets of Manhattan on Thursday, Nov. 25 in grand style.

After last year’s march was strictly kept as a made-for-TV event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s grand spectacle was again open to tens of thousands of spectators who got to see the miles-long parade of floats, balloons, marching bands, singers and dancers in person.

Take a look at some of the sights from this year’s parade.
