For the 33rd straight year, floats in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City will be towed through the streets of Manhattan by GMC vehicles.
The 2014 GMC Sierra 1500, Yukon Denali/Denali XL, and Acadia Denali crossover will be tasked with pulling the floats full of flowers, decorations and dancers for the 3.5 million spectators and 50 million viewers at home to see. The floats can be up to 40 feet tall, 25 feet wide, 50 feet long and can weigh as much as 8,000 pounds.
“We’re excited to continue this pairing of two iconic American brands,” said director of GMC advertising and sales promotion, Sandra Moore. “It’s a grand stage to display the unique design, advanced engineering and capability of GMC trucks, complemented by these remarkable floating works of art.”
In total, more than 50 GMC vehicles will be at the parade. You can follow live updates on the parade from GMC on their Twitter and Instagram pages @ThisisGMC. They will also be updating their Facebook and Google+ pages with photos after the parade.
There’s also a Thanksgiving Day Parade in Detroit, GMC. Just saying.
