Of course, turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie are essential, but Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, right? Every year growing up, I set my alarm and woke up early to watch The Rockettes and elaborate floats on my TV screen. My sister and I got so excited about the different musical acts, and of course, seeing the giant balloons rise above the city. When I moved to New York City for college, I finally got the chance to see them up close and personal as they floated down Central Park West. Whether you're watching the magic unfold in The Big Apple or from the comforts of your couch at home, you'll need some captions for Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade pics.
I highly recommend that you add visiting New York City during Thanksgiving to your bucket list ASAP. You can walk around with your squad and snap pics in front of your favorite balloons as they're getting inflated and all set for their big debut. Be sure to stop by Levain Bakery for a chocolate chip cookie and Starbucks for a hot cocoa first, so you have something to snack on while you're strolling along Central Park. It will put you right in the holiday spirit.
It should also be on everyone's bucket list to watch the parade in person at least once. Though, I do love the coziness of watching at home with my family in my PJs. Whether you have a squad pic in front of your favorite balloon, or a selfie with mom while you're watching at home, consider using any of these 24 parade captions for Instagram, and have a happy Thanksgiving!
