For some, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is almost as important as turkey and touchdowns.
This year's parade got a big start from some Nashville band members.
Last year, the Father Ryan High School band made a splash with its robot routine.
Parade organizers were so impressed they invited three members of the drumline back again this year.
The guys said it is harder than it looks performing on a cold morning. Temperatures in New York City hovered near 30 degrees Thursday morning.
