For many families including mine, it is a tradition to get up early on Thanksgiving to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, or at least early enough to see Santa Clause at the end. This year the parade celebrates it's 86th year on Thanksgiving (November, 22nd 2012). Here is all the viewing info for this years parade.

More than 3.5 million people view the parade live along the parade route, and more than 50 million viewers tune in to the television broadcast. Spectators watch in awe as 10,000 participants — including the nation's best marching bands, performance groups, giant helium balloons, breathtaking floats and the one-and-only Santa Claus — pass before their eyes.

This years parade can be seen on NBC (Channel 9) Thursday, November, 22nd starting at 9AM and going until 12 Noon in every time zone.

Happy (early) Turkey Day!!!
