Autocar and AutoWDare announced 2019 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade team

Every Christmas, a new automotive invention is touted as the wacky but oh-so-cool – and here’s the latest.

Forget wings, everyone wants to know: “Who will pull Santa’s sleigh at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year?”

And we think we know.

This year, boys and girls – especially big ones – everywhere will be excited to find out that even though the Boy Scouts, The Salvation Army and St. Joseph’s Church do the push-up push-ups, it’s the turkey-loving passengers who have the chance to ho-ho-ho-ho in the grand procession.

According to, – with the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 pulling Santa’s sleigh – 100,000 people will watch the parade, which starts and ends at Macy’s Herald Square, in Manhattan, and begins at 8:45 a.m. on Thursday, 22 November, with pre-show, feature, interviews and appearances from the stars of Dancing with the Stars, music legend Bill T. Jones, and Broadway musical theatre stars Chita Rivera and Amber Riley.

Guinness World Records says that for 26 years, the Salvation Army also has been assisting Macy’s with the parade.

According to the Salvation Army, which operates 79 branches in seven states across the US, assistance from holiday donations specifically goes toward fulfilling “wishes for children and families” – providing food, clothing, household items, presents and more.

“When people donate to the Salvation Army, their donations allow us to help those who might not have enough money for the holidays or might not be able to get to holiday events otherwise because of their circumstances,” said Carol Frost, Salvation Army national director of Divisional relations.

Auto-related media company reports the parade in NYC is the largest-ever simultaneous auto industry event for the broadcast.
