Every year we all watch the Thanksgiving parade that runs through Manhattan while we are fixing our holiday dinners. The idea of going and experiencing this in person seemed overwhelming, complicated, cold, and uncomfortable. And that was all true until 2 years ago.

We can now offer this experience in a seamless and impressive manner that appeals to all ages.

Begin with the arrangements for your overnight stay in the most exciting city in the world. The location is perfect, just a 10-minute walk from the property where you will be viewing the parade running down Fifth Avenue. The hotel is on 56th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue, a short walk to Central Park and a perfect location for a home base.

You can select your room type when making your reservation. Your days are unplanned but any experience you wish can be pre-arranged for your stay.

This 3-hour event includes an elaborate brunch before the event. Top shelf champagne, mixed brunch drinks, and a delicious selection of dishes that will appeal to everyone, and all in abundance and in comfort. This is not a cheesy display of food items. The tour has been tested in 2017 and deemed a winner!

The brunch is served in the viewing space which is on the parade route. You are not set back on the street; rather you are in an indoor location eye level with the balloons as they pass by so you can capture the best photos.

Besides the memories which can never be erased, everyone will receive a commemorative silicone wrist band which allows you to enter and leave and reenter the event. There are times when, during the parade, families will want to see what the parade is like from the street level and you are able to do so without worrying about re-entry.

There are only 80 spaces to be sold for this and the event has always been a sell-out. Everything has been thoughtfully planned and is executed perfectly.

Consider this for your families that are looking for a special event in a luxury fashion to top their experience list for the year and beyond!
