Vote of the week: Your favorite holiday parade?
Written by Robert Niles
Time for a little holiday showdown: which is the better holiday parade, Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in New York City, or New Year's Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, Calif.?Tweet
Yep, there is a theme park connection here: A version of the Macy's Parade also runs through the holiday season at the Universal Orlando Resort, and Disneyland often has a float in the Rose Parade, where Mickey Mouse served a grand marshal a few years back. (Disneyland's not on the participant list this year, though.)
It's Thanksgiving week in the U.S., which might tip votes toward Macy's, but the Rose Parade holds the home-court advantage on TPI, as the site's HQ lies three blocks from the Rose Parade route.
(Note: I'm not including Disney World's Christmas Parade among the choices, since it is no longer broadcast live. What you now see on ABC Christmas morning is a canned special, taped weeks in advance.)
Explain your vote in the comments, please.
