Bryant Park has something for each member of the family. Tackle some holiday shopping at The Shops, burn off some pre-turkey calories at The Rink, or enjoy food and drinks from Celsius or the Bryant Park Grill.
Although parts of the park will be closed to the public before and during the parade (shown in red below), the park will resume normal operations once the parade has passed by at around noon. When you do arrive at the park, be sure to use entrances along 42nd Streets, as those along 6th Avenue and 40th Streets will be closed during the parade.

The Holiday Shops: 11am-8pm
Although many Shops do choose to stay open on Thanksgiving, it is ultimately up to the individual vendors to decide. For this reason, certain Holiday Shops may close early or close entirely for the day.
Le Carrousel: 9am-10pm
Take a whirl on Le Carrousel - it's the perfect place to take those little cousins who are visiting and just won't sit still.
Southwest Porch: 10am-10pm
The toasty warm fire pit at the Southwest Porch is a great place to warm up while grabbing a drink or a snack.
Sandwich, Coffee, and Grilled Cheese Kiosks will operate with normal hours (which can be found here). Yogurt and Hot Chocolate Kiosks will be closed for the day.
Bryant Park Grill: 12pm-9pm
If you're looking to skip the Thanksgiving cooking hassle, why not let the talented chefs at The Grill do the work for you? They have a special prix fix Thanksgiving menu. Call them up at (212) 840-6500 to make a reservation.
