The 85th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be celebrated on Thursday, November 24, 2011 which will start at 77th Street and Central Park West at around 9 a.m., according to Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade website.

Millions of people are expected to occupy the streets of Manhattan as the 85th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade march its way down to Herald Square.

Dozens of performers, bands, novelty balloons and giant balloons are also expected to make an appearance during the parade. City officials and organizers of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade are closely monitoring the weather, according to reports.

“Weather patterns can sometimes change dramatically from day to day and even hourly, and so Macy’s and city officials rely on current data to determine if and at what heights the giant balloons will join the line-up,” said the spokesman, Orlando Vegas in a report.

Meanwhile, one of the highlights of this year’s parade is the return of the Kool-Aid Man who take part in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2010, as reported by My Fox New York.
