Headlining among celebrity performers at this year's parade will be Jordin Sparks, Train, Trey Songz, Andra Day, Shawn Mendes, Pat Benatar and Neil Geraldo, Questlove, Mipso, Prince Royce, Rachel Platten, Miss America 2016 Betty Cantrell, Mariah Carey, Sofia Carson and Dove Cameron, Andy Grammer, Mercyme, Jennifer Nettles, Jake Owen, Panic! at the Disco, Plain White T's and Daughtry. The show will also feature performances from the Broadway casts of Fiddler on the Roof, Finding Neverland, The King and I, On Your Feet!, Something Rotten! and School of Rock.
The parade will also feature several dance troups and marching bands, as well as fantastic floats and perhaps the biggest stars of the show, the balloons. Joining classics including Hello Kitty, The Pillsbury Doughboy, Snoopy and Woodstock, Thomas the Tank Engine and Ronald McDonald are other recent favorites, like Diary of a Wimpy Kids, Pikachu, Spongebob Squarepants, Toothless, Adventure Time with Finn and Jake, The Elf on the Shelf, Skylanders Eruptor, the Red Mighty Morphin Power Ranger, Paddington and the Red Angry Bird.
