Parade watchers will get the chance to view performances from all three of Disney's Broadway hits when performers from Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and Aida strut their stuff at Macy's Pet-acular event March 24.
Beth Fowler, who created the role of Mrs. Potts in the Broadway company of Beauty and the Beast, will perform that show's Academy Award-winning title tune. The Lion King's John Brady and Tom Alan Robbins will perform the upbeat "Hakuna Matata," and Felicia Finley, who portrays Egyptian princess Amneris in Aida, will belt her solo, "My Strongest Suit."
The 6th Annual Macy's Pet-acular will be held on Sunday, March 24 from 10 AM to 12:30 PM on Broadway between 34th and 35th Streets at Macy's Herald Square. This annual salute to loveable pets will consume two full city blocks in front of Macy's flagship store in Herald Square.
Early risers can take part in the 2nd Annual Macy's Barkfast at 8:30 AM. Guests and their pets will enjoy breakfast and entertainment at this morning event, which benefits Animal Haven, a no-kill shelter that is a sanctuary for abandoned New York City animals. From 10 AM to noon is the day's traditional highlight, Pets on Parade, where participating pets, dressed in outrageous bonnets and costumes, strut their stuff. This animal fashion show will be judged by The Mad Hatter and awards will be given to The Bow Wow! (Best Dog), The Cat's Meow! (Best Cat), The Featured Creature (Most Exotic Pet) and The Grand Pet-acular! (Best of Show).
