This big event at Universal Studios Florida in December marks its 10th anniversary at the
theme park. Many of the actual props and balloons used in the New York Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade are shipped down to Universal Orlando especially for this event. The Macy’s Holiday Parade is also notable as unlike the Mardi Gras parade (which only happens once a week in the spring) this parade runs every night at park closing throughout the month of December.

This event is great to see as the streets of Universal Studio's really do come alive! You have the excitement of balloons and floats that go beyond your imagination! There are marching bands and even Santa!
Top Tip – The best place to watch the parade is in front of the Macy’s building which is located in the New York are of Universal Studio’s. This is also where you will find the Universal Studio’s Christmas Tree so you won’t miss it!!
At the end of the parade there is also a tree lighting ceremony in the New York area of Universal Studios.
Here are the opening times and dates:
December - 16, 19-25, Jan 1 at 5:00pm
