Behind the scenes of Macy's Parade
The 2018 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade hasn't yet marched through New York City, but the 2019 bands were already announced months ago. Macy's Parade Studio has a year-round staff preparing the floats, costumes and balloons, and the crew swells on parade morning to include more than 100 makeup artists and 150 costume dressers. Check out this short video to meet some of the people who make it all happen. Catch the 2018 parade on Thursday, November 22, at 9 AM on NBC (all time zones).
