Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in Second Life!




Happy thanksgiving 2021 to you and yours :) Welcome to the 18th annual Macy's Thanksgiving parade tribute in fabulous New York City! 

The parade has won many awards and is the only totally interactive parade in Second Life.  It is approx 1+  hours long and has 103 floats and balloons to date. It runs 24/7 so be sure to come back if you miss any of it and bring your friends :) great photo ops for all

Please remove all unnecessary huds and trackers laggy attachments etc. 

The parade runs down the main route (5th ave)  (if you can't see the balloons (pan your cam up)

To ride the floats and balloons right-click on one and choose to sit or ride -- it has many couples rides also :) any floats with pose balls you can also choose where to sit by hitting on that ball.

Note:  if you are on a float that does not disappear at the end of the ride please stand and get off the ride

The parade is best viewed at midday or noontime 

There is a slight pause from the end to the beginning of the next start of the parade to allow all to see from the beginning and tp friends to join you.

Tips 

The best way to get a great experience riding the floats is to go to the start of the parade and take the 4 1/2 min. Ride to the end, then fly back to the start again or pick another that is already out. The best view of the parade is from the sidewalk at the little shop on the corner.

If your graphics can handle it turn up your draw distance far enough to see the beginning and end of the parade route

  • Macy's building
