(NBC) -

Millions of people turned out today for the 91st Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. 

Following some warm-up acts, which included a performance by the Radio City Rockettes, the Tom Turkey float made its grand entrance, paying tribute to the first Thanksgiving in 1621. Prairie view A&M University Marching Band from Texas led the way.  Of course the parade's famous giant character balloons soared above the crowds, including newcomer Olaf from "Frozen", Charlie Brown, Spongebob Squarepants and a new and improved Grinch. Also new to the parade this year, Macy's singing Christmas tree, a 39 foot tall float that includes Macy's employees singing. 

And of course, the parade wouldn't be complete without an appearance from Santa Claus.
