In celebration of the 2016 holiday season, Macy’s is proud to announce that its 26th annual My Macy’s Holiday Parade will take place on Friday, November 25, 2016 in downtown Seattle. The parade steps off promptly at 9 a.m. and lasts approximately one hour.

The Seattle Times and Warm 106.9 FM radio are the media partners for the Parade this year. Macy’s signature inflatable floats will make their annual appearance in this Seattle tradition. The parade will feature 25 inflatable floats, local middle and high school marching bands, nearly 650 costumed characters, professional sports teams and community drill teams. New to this year’s parade is lovable inflatable snowman float and a scene stealing inflatable ladybug float that is capable of spinning herself around on the route. In addition, we are introducing our very first inflatable costumes! An inflatable snowman and an elf will make their debut in this year’s parade.

Santaland
The parade will conclude shortly after Santa dashes in his sleigh past Macy’s, heading directly from the North Pole to his Seattle holiday post in Macy’s Santaland on the 3rd floor, which opens at 11:00 AM. Santaland is open from November 25 through December 24.

MY MACY’S 60th ANNUAL STAR LIGHTING & FIREWORKS SHOW

That same evening, Macy’s will continue the tradition of the Holiday Starlighting ceremony in conjunction with the annual lighting of the Westlake Center Tree and the Downtown Seattle Association’s Holiday Carousel at Westlake Park. The famous 161-foot high, 3,600-bulb Holiday Star is a Seattle favorite. This event begins at 5 p.m. and will include an incredible fireworks display (weather permitting).
