The annual My Macy's Holiday Parade will take place on Friday, November 23, 2012 in downtown Seattle. The parade steps off promptly at 9 a.m. and lasts approximately one hour. The Holiday Parade route will begin at 7th and Pine, then travel west down Pine St. to 5th Avenue, south on 5th Avenue to University Street, west on University to 4th Avenue, and then north on 4th to Macy's doorstep.
The 2012 My Macy's Holiday Parade will feature 25 inflatable floats, local middle and high school marching bands, sports teams and mascots and nearly 650 costumed characters, community floats and much more! Two new shiny, golden helium balloons have been added to the line-up this year as well as new nutcracker, sock monkey, dreidel, turtle, flower, frog, adult and child bees, peppermint candy, Macy's shopping bags, and peacock costumes.
The parade will conclude shortly after Santa dashes in his sleigh to Macy's, heading directly from the North Pole to his Portland holiday post in Macy's Santaland, which opens at 11:00 AM.
