If you’re like us, you always look at a spectacle and wonder: “I wonder how they did that?”

Ever since we were little kids, we both wanted to travel to NYC to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in person. (Josh also wanted to co-host the parade from a TV booth high in the sky…but so far, no luck.) After we moved to New York, we finally got to witness the parade a few times. Then we started avoiding the crowds by instead partaking in the “secret” New Yorker tradition of watching the parade balloons being inflated on the side streets the Wednesday evening before the parade. That was fun too.

But not as much fun as getting a sneak peek inside the Macy’s Studio where all of the preparations are made for the parade. It’s a year-round job. The giant facility in New Jersey is also home to all of the preparations for the Macy’s Flower Show, and other legendary events. Take a walk around with us and peek at just a fraction of the work that goes into making the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade so magical…
