You know how MUCH I LOVE the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®! We talk about it each year here on the air. Producer David gets so in to it, that he goes to the Balloon Inflation on the Upper West Side of Manhattan the night before, with the huge crowds that spend the afternoon and early evening there just to see these magical characters and classic figures come to life on the ‘eve’ of one of New York’s most cherished Holiday Traditions!

For the past decade, Balsam Hill has been spreading Christmas cheer to families around the world with their highly-realistic artificial Christmas trees and holiday décor. For more than 3.5 million spectators and more than 50 million viewers nationwide, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® signifies the beginning of the holiday season and Balsam Hill is proud to be part of such a long-standing tradition.
Standing over 30 feet tall, Balsam Hill’s “Deck The Halls” float embodies all that is Christmas – from toys and decorated trees, to entertainment and joy. Modeled after the traditional wooden pyramid, each of the three levels were hand-carved and hand-painted by the Macy’s Parade Studio to encapsulate different aspects of the holiday season enjoyed around the world.
At the base of the float, multiple Balsam Hill trees are adorned with stunning decorations in different styles to showcase a host of family traditions. Whimsical, larger-than-life ornaments, toys, and a snowman help capture the magic and joy of Christmas. The centerpiece of the float is a stunning carousel that spins as it is ridden by children dressed in snowy winter wonderland inspired costumes. To complete the scene, each year a special performer will delight audiences as the float makes its way down the Parade route and into millions of homes this Thanksgiving.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® airs nationwide on NBC-TV, on Thursday November 23rd 2017 from 9am – 12pm in all time zones.
