Macy's Holiday Parade

Macy's Holiday Parade: At Universal Studios, the Macy’s Holiday Parade will celebrate its 12th Anniversary of partnership with Universal Orlando by filling the streets every evening with some of the same iconic elements seen winding through New York City each year at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The beloved event features colorful holiday characters, fantasy-filled floats – including one specially-designed to commemorate the 10-year milestone – a tree-lighting ceremony by Santa Claus and dozens of larger-than-life balloons. The Macy’s Holiday Parade also welcomes select park guests to participate in the procession as real balloon-handlers guiding the helium giants, a truly unique and exclusive experience to Universal Orlando. The parade will be Dec. 7- Dec. 25 at 5 p.m., Dec. 26 - 31 at 8 p.m. and Jan. 1 - 4 at 5 p.m.UNIVERSAL ORLANDO
