Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Many of you are asking for information regarding the trip to NYC. We are very excited about the opportunity to participate in such an amazing performance.


I will be calling a parent meeting for anyone interested in the Macy's trip once I have all the specific details.


One of our Majestic Parents contacted Spirt Of America and asked them if their daughter could still participate if their family also attended, but did not buy the full spectator package. Here is the response:

"Thanks for contacting us about this year's Parade. Your daughter would purchase the full package and we can allow her to stay with you and family even though you wont be on our package. You would, however, have to stay at the same hotel, New York Hilton Midtown. We would just need to let her Staff Chaperone know she would be in your room for nightly room checks. For tickets to activities, you would need to purchase those separately at each venue. Families in the past have found that our package is much cheaper than piecing the activities, hotel, meals, etc. on your own.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Thanks."


If you are serious about participating in this NYC trip, or want to know more information, please look at their website. Contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
