MOONACHI, NJ (WABC) — Within 10 days of the 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a celebration is set to take place in a way that wasn’t possible last year because of a pandemic.

“These are hand-engraved, driveable stages,” said Wilkos, executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

They are intricate works of art created by a team of carpenters, engineers, painters, electricians and many more.

During Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, six freshmen gliding along a 2.5-mile route in New York City.

A total of 28 floats amaze the straight crowd.

Due to last year’s pandemic, people watched a lesser version from home.

Not so this time. Everyone is pulling out all the stops.

“We have self-driving units ranging in size, scale, spectacle to animation points. This year is a really dynamic year and we’re really excited,” said Koss.

However, it may take 8-10 months and in some cases even a year to reach this point.

It all starts with an idea, followed by a sketch and an important engineering phase.

“We begin to understand how we actually build it structurally so that we can keep people on top,” Kos said.

Next step… Moonachi’s team dismantles all the floats. Each float folds up to 12 feet x 8.5 feet. This is the key to the float to safely pass through the Lincoln Tunnel on Wednesday night.

“We took them to New York City the day before the parade, made them overnight on the Upper West Side, and then we have the magic,” Koss said.

On the 95th anniversary of this iconic parade, Kos says it will be a lively day.

“It was made with love,” he said.
