"The Prom" Features First LGBTQ Kiss on Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Telecast

Lydia FlemingНоя 23, 2018

According to Macy's official parade lineup, the Goku balloon stands at 56-feet tall, 36-feet wide, 70-feet long, and requires a total of 90 handlers to maneuver it through two-and-a-half miles of New York City streets during the parade.

Dylan Mahoney, who has come to the parade every year for the past dozen years, said he stayed warm by layering, including several pairs of socks.

Macy's executive producer, Susan Tercero, told EW of the show: "We like to be able to debut the best of Broadway, but we also like to show those viewers what they want to see".

Since 1924, the Macy's Parade has enthralled the nation and become synonymous with the start of the holiday season.

Ora tweeted thanks to Macy's for "the honesty". Diana Ross, John Legend, Martina McBride and the Muppets from "Sesame Street" were scheduled to perform, and the city of NY, concerned about frostbite, issued an advisory to spectators to ensure they were adequately dressed for the brutal weather. To wit: During this year's festivities, the cast of the new Broadway musical The Prom gifted the annual tradition with its first ever on-air same-sex kiss.

Giant balloons of Charlie Brown, Sponge Bob and other beloved characters were cleared for takeoff just before the parade started amid some of the coldest temperatures in its history. This is one of the country's most watched televised events, according to a Macy's press release.

Due to the anticipated frigid temperatures, New York City issued an extreme cold weather alert for Thursday and warned anyone planning to courageous the elements to take caution by bundling up and covering fingertips, earlobes, and noses to prevent potential frostbite.

The coldest on record was in 1871, when the warmest the city got was -5.5 C.

The balloons and the bands are braving the blustery cold to make their way through Manhattan for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Jack and Jack, John Legend, Kane Brown, Leona Lewis, Mackenzie Ziegler and Johnny Orlando, Martina McBride, Pentatonix, Rita Ora, Sugarland and Tegan Marie will also appear.
