Rushmore Race

Up and away!

For the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Mount Rushmore Boys are floating from the Black Hills of South Dakota to the streets of New York City. It’s a feat worthy of celebrating the 75th anniversary of the state’s most iconic landmark, Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Tune in to see if they make it in time, and don’t miss our float in the parade!
For the seventh year in a row, South Dakota will have a reproduction of Mount Rushmore in the parade. This year’s musical guest, Ben Rector, will join a star-studded lineup of past performers including Mannheim Steamroller, Neil Diamond, Don McLean, The Summer Set, NEEDTOBREATHE and MercyMe.
WHEN: 9 a.m.-12 noon, Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 24
WHERE: your local NBC-TV station or on
