My Macy's Holiday Parade
In celebration of the 2012 holiday season, Macy’s is proud to announce that its annual My Macy’s Holiday Parade will take place on Friday, November 23, 2012 in downtown Seattle! The parade steps off promptly at 9 a.m. and lasts approximately one hour.
The Seattle Times and Warm 106.9 are proud to be the media partners for the Parade this year!
Macy's signature inflatable floats will make their annual appearance in this Seattle tradition, and this year's Parade will mark the debut of two shiny new gold star balloons which will escort Santa’s sleigh. 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.

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 6th floor, which opens at 11:00 AM. Santaland is open from November 23 through December 24.
That same evening, Macy’s will continue the tradition of the Holiday Star Lighting Ceremony in conjunction with the annual Seattle Westlake Center tree lighting. 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).
