Grab the family (or watch alone) it’s the parade that we are ALL itching to see and here are some must-knows for you to see. 

I grew up in New Jersey, and my family was one of those nutty ones that got up at 4 am and camped out on the streets on NYC to watch the parade. The thought of it now makes me shiver, but boy is those some of my fondest memories. Nowadays, I watch the parade from the comfort of my couch with a warm coffee in my hand. And if you are like me, you don’t want to miss one of the greatest holiday parades so here are the basics you need to know.

  • The official Parade broadcast begins at 9 AM in all time zones Thanksgiving Day on NBC.
  • If you don’t have cable, you can stream the feed on NBC.com, on Hulu+, YouTube TV, or on the NBC mobile app.
  • Terry Crews and Lilly Singh host the exclusive Verizon 360 Livestream, featuring views from 360 cameras places at multiple points along the parade route. Access the 360 Livestream on Verizon’s YouTube page beginning 8:30 AM ET.
