    The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City has taken place every year since 1924.

    K-Pop boy band NCT 127 performed at the 93rd annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on 28 November. On board the LEGO float with their hit “Highway to Heaven”, the group became the first K-pop band in the parade's almost 100-year history to attend. The song is from their recent EP "We Are Superhuman" - the English version of the song was released in July 2019.

    Other stars, such as Ciara, Celine Dion, the Black Eyed Peas, and many others also took part in the parade.

    Earlier this month, NCT 127 attended the MTV Europe Music Awards and was the first K-pop group to perform live at the show.

    Fans are full of excitement over the fact that their favourite stars are making history again.

    NCT 127 is a South Korean sub-unit of the NCT K-pop band, which was formed by SM Entertainment. The group debuted in 2016 and over the course of three years has had two No.1 albums on the World Albums chart. Their most recent EP "We Are Superhuman" debuted at No.11 on the Billboard 200 chart, and in 2019, NCT 127 had their first successful concert tour called "Neo City – The Origin", with tour dates in Korea, Japan, North America, and Europe.

    The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, one of the world's largest parades and which features balloons and decorated floats, takes place every last Thursday of November on Thanksgiving Day in the USA, sponsored by the famous department store chain Macy's.
