Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Reviews
2018年はかなり寒く、子供を連れては長くは見てられませんでしたが、いろいろな車が通るのでこどもはとても楽しそうでした。メイシーズの前は通行止めになるので気をつけた方が良いです。 more »Although it was very cold in 2018, I could not take a long time with my children, but the kids seemed to be having a lot of fun because various cars passed by. It is better to be careful because it is blocked in front of Macy's.
A pesar de que me hubiese encantado ver el desfile completo y estaba en un hotel a media cuadra del central park, el frio fue terrible ese dia!! segun lo que despues me entere fue el thanksgiving mas ... more »Even though I would have loved to see the entire parade and was in a hotel half a block from Central Park, the cold was terrible that day!! According to what I learned later was the coldest Thanksgiving since 1940 or something... Leaving aside the cold, I arrived with my mom, she in a wheelchair, at 8am (the parade began at 9am and arrived where we were at 9:15am approx) was impossible to approach the fence, unfortunately was not a very good experience for us , she really little and nothing could see from the chair, I stand something better but not so much, on the other side of the avenue had plenty of room to accommodate and despite the fact that the police allowed to cross the people, had to get to the fence to do so and People (who are usually very friendly) were very aggressive if they believed remotely that you wanted to steal the place. Before 10am, we decided to go for a coffee and try to warm up a bit, teminamos to see it on the TV in the hotel room... In Conclucion, you have to be in the desired place to the 7am if you want to see something, bring chairs, blankets, thermos with coffee and you better not want to go to the bathroom! If you are in NYC just for that date (as was our case) tries to see it from the window of some bar or restore on a 1st floor, but it is very difficult to see everything, especially if you are with children or people with some motor difficulty. For me it was a tick on my bucket list, but it's definitely not something I would do again, at least not on the street; If from the hotel room you can see in pajamas and a rich cafe, is ideal! Another thing is that for some reason (misinformation on my part) I really thought that the parade was related to specific things and allusive the day of Thanksgiving, but except for some floats and some balloons, nothing had to do with this, were only characters of TV Animation and movies (SpongeBob, How to Train Your dragon, etc) and some purely commercial (some condensed grouts for example). This I found something decepcinante.
