As one of the most mainstream opportunities to watch great marching bands, the 2018 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has a lineup worth paying attention to! Twelve marching bands will be featured in this year's parade on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22.

Performing alongside John Legend and Pentatonix are just one benefit from making the 2.5 mile-long trek throughout New York City, from 9 AM ET to 12 PM.

At the end of the road, the bands will get a chance to perform a piece that they've prepared just for a very special, typically very cold Thursday in late November!
