This year’s parade is scheduled to take over the Big Apple on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 289) with a start time at 9 a.m.
“Can’t wait to perform in the @Macys Parade on Thanksgiving Day,” Young shared on social media early Friday morning (11/1).
In addition to Young, Janson and Townes’ performances, those tuning in will also get to hear songs from Natasha Bedingfield, Black Eyed Peas, Chicago, Ciara, Josh Dela Cruz, Debbie Gibson, former NASA Astronauts Kay Hire & Janet Kavandi, Idina Menzel, Lea Michele, Miss America 2019 Nia Franklin, NHL® Legends Dominic Moore and Eddie Olczyk, the cast & Muppets of Sesame Street, NCT 127, Ozuna, Billy Porter, Kelly Rowland, That Girl Lay Lay and TLC. The highlight of the parade, however, will be when the one and only Santa Claus makes his annual appearance.
