It’s that time of year again! As we head into November fans can already prepare themselves for what’s going to be a star-studded lineup at the 92nd Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Marching through the streets of New York City on Thursday, November 22, country artists including Sugarland, Carly Pearce, Kane Brown, Martina McBride and Tegan Marie will all help celebrate the season of giving.

“This year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will redefine spectacle with a jaw-dropping mix of must-see entertainment for millions of spectators,” said Susan Tercero, executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, in a press release. “Featuring an amazing line-up of high flying balloons, dazzling animated floats, world-class marching bands and performance groups, the nation’s top music artists, and of course, the one-and-only Santa Claus, the Macy’s Parade will once again herald the arrival of the holiday season.”

In addition to the country acts performing amongst the highly-anticipated floats, fans will be treated to performances from Bad Bunny, Barenaked Ladies, Bazzi, Ally Brooke, Brynn Cartelli, Jack & Jack, John Legend, Leona Lewis, Ella Mai, Rita Ora, Pentatonix, Anika Noni Rose and the cast and Muppets of Sesame Street, Diana Ross with her children and extended family (including Rhonda Ross, Tracee Ellis Ross, Chudney Ross, Ross Naess and Evan Ross with wife Ashlee Simpson-Ross), Ashley Tisdale, Mackenzie Ziegler and Johnny Orlando; with a special appearance by Santa Claus.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will march through NYC, beginning at 9 a.m. (in all time zones) and will feature 16 giant character balloons; 43 novelty balloons, heritage balloons, balloonicles, balloonheads and trycaloons; 26 floats; 1,200 cheerleaders and dancers; more than 1,000 clowns; and 12 marching bands.
