Slingbox users were feeling the holiday spirit this past week as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade made our top ten list. For 89 years, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has kicked-off the highly anticipated holiday season in the United States. This year, more than 3.5 million people watched the parade in person from midtown New York City, while 50 million people worldwide tuned in with family and friends at home.
The two and a half-mile route through the streets of Manhattan was filled with enormous balloons, custom-made floats, marching bands, dancers and so much more! The first parade was held on Thanksgiving Day in 1924 and was originally called the Macy’s Christmas Parade. Throughout the years, the name shifted and the parade is now both a Thanksgiving and Christmas celebration that has become a holiday tradition for many!
Use your Slingbox to catch all of the holiday specials this year. Another classic New York event, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree lighting, will air on NBC tonight at 8 p.m.
We’ll be back Friday with sports.
