The 2016 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the 90th parade.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a part of the American tradition of Thanksgiving Day. Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade celebrates 90th birthday. With more than 50 million viewers across the country and more than 3.5 million spectators that line up along the streets of New York City each year, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a national icon that has grown into a world-famous holiday event.

This year Krazy Glue is partnering with Macy’s to send the “Fun House” float down the streets of New York City as millions marvel at the outrageous display of kraziness. Krazy Glue debuts Fun House, the newest float in the 90th Anniversary Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (Photo: Business Wire)

“Krazy Glue is an instant solution and the only super glue that allows consumers to create ‘krazy’ things. Macy’s has been a fantastic partner in bringing the brand’s remarkable ability to glue things together to life with the Fun House float,” said Victor Misawa, senior vice president of marketing, Writing & Creative Expression, Newell Brands. “We’re thrilled to debut our fun and ‘krazy’ float during the landmark 90th anniversary of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.”

The Fun House float will stand more than three stories tall and will be a manifestation of the unbelievable things that are possible with Krazy Glue. Inside the fun house, the main room will rock back and forth while a chandelier, piano, tables and chairs are glued to the walls and ceiling.

Outside, life-sized cars attached by their roofs, piles of dishes stacked to unbelievable heights, and a tower of chairs glued together at odd angles will wow spectators. Escorting the float will be a party of carnival performers, including a strong man lifting a colossal weight over his head, acrobats demonstrating impossible gymnastic feats, and street artists balancing enormously tall stacks of plates and hats.

“For 90 years, the Macy’s Parade has entertained millions with spectacles of grandeur. The Krazy Glue float offers an extension of that theme in a fun, offbeat and unexpected way,” said Amy Kule, executive producer of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “The Krazy Glue team has been a great partner in designing this wacky float, and we’re thrilled to bring a little bit of ‘krazy’ to the Parade in 2016.”

The 90th Anniversary Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade airs nationwide on NBC-TV, from 9am to noon in all time zones on Thursday, Nov. 24, 2016.

Macy's stores will open at 5pm for the Macy's Black Friday 2016 sale. Macy's is part of the Thanksgiving Day tradition since 90 years, but they still open stores on the Holiday to be compete with other stores that will open as well on Thanksgiving Day.
