America’s favorite holiday tradition kicked off the season of joy. The 89th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade marched down the streets of New York on Thursday, November 26 (9 a.m.-noon in all time zones). In it were the Bollywood dancers from Arya International, in step with the season of joy.

As millions celebrated the holiday with family and friends, more than 8,000 participants – including clowns, balloon handlers and marching bands – skipped their way through Manhattan to the sound of “Let’s Have a Parade.” More than 3.5 million spectators and over 50 million television viewers nationwide, viewed the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It is the nation’s most celebrated and anticipated holiday treat.

Watch the Bollywood team who was part of the parade.
