Along with Thanksgiving however comes cold weather. For the 92nd anniversary of the parade, it is expected that the winds of winter will be hitting New York in full force making Thanksgiving Day one of the coldest days yet in the fall season of 2018.


We encourage anyone attending the parade to bundle up! All the following are items you should consider wearing to the parade:

  • Outerware - Coats, Jackets, and Hoodies
  • Warm Accessories - Hats, Gloves, and Scarves

Along with the gusty 20+ mile per hour winds that are expected, the temperature is expected to fall below 30 degrees Fahrenheit, so definitely make sure to put on those layers!
