The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been a family tradition for many Americans since 1927. The floats are artfully created, the bands a joy to listen to, the balloons are always a surprise and somehow a comfort to see and of course there’s the pièce de résistance – the big man himself, Santa Claus, who closes out the parade and of course marks the start of the Christmas season!

Somewhere in the midst of the holiday fun, we’ve seen television actors. In 2007 Guiding Light’s Gina Tognoni showed off her engagement ring, and this year, NBC stars such as Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, Jane Krakowski, Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady) and James Scott (EJ DiMera) will be seen!
Here’s a sneak peek at what floats you can expect to see while watching the parade in person or on television: Pillsbury Doughboy, Mickey Mouse (4th version; “Cruiseship Mickey”), Ronald McDonald (3rd version), Spider-Man (2nd version).

Whether you’ll be attending the parade in person with thousands of others or watching it on the television, knows you’re going to enjoy the added excitement of seeing two of the biggest stars of Days of Our Lives.
