Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2023: Will There Be a Rerun?

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2023: Will There Be a Rerun?

With Thanksgiving morning behind us, so, too, is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. The first run-through, that is. That’s right! If you caught a few extra zzz’s this morning and missed the iconic event, you can still watch, thanks to the re-run airing on NBC.

For those who missed the first showing, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will air again at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT).

In addition to airing on NBC, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be simulcast on Peacock, as well as Telemundo for Spanish-speaking audiences.

Peacock does require a subscription to Peacock Premium, but the streaming service is currently running a Black Friday deal for $1.99/month, a major discount from the regular monthly price of $5.99.
