History with the Macy's Parade

Peacock will make its Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade debut in the 2021 Parade, becoming the first-ever float based on a streaming service to appear in the lineup. Titled "Bird of a Feather Stream Together," the Peacock float features a multi-story peacock strutting proud with a wink and a wing flutter, decked out in metallic and color-shifting paint, sparkling glitter and paillettes. Surrounding the proud passerine are flashing lights, LED displays, a mylar fringe skirt and a glitzy look that you can't not watch.

The Peacock float will also be the second of its kind to feature a live video feed, following Cracker Jack's "At the Ball Game" float. With a camera perched on the Peacock and monitors on the tail end, spectators will get a bird's eye view of the Parade.

Riding on the float will be the cast of the streaming service's original series, Girls5eva; Sara Bareilles, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Paula Pell and Busy Philipps, who will perform the series' theme song, "Famous 5eva."
