Famous faces including Ariana Grande, Carrie Underwood and Fall Out Boy took time away from their turkey feasts to take part in the iconic MACy's Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City on Thursday (28Nov13).

The stars were all on hand to help the masses celebrate the holiday as the parade's floats made their way through the Big Apple, with huge inflatables of Spider-Man, Snoopy, Sonic the Hedgehog and SpongeBob Squarepants drifting in the sky.

As well as Grande, Underwood, Kristin Chenoweth and Fall Out Boy, Tv host Jimmy Fallon was also on a float with the characters from Sesame Street, while Kellie Pickler donned a red gown on an autumn-themed platform.

Even the Brits got involved - U.K. pop star Cher Lloyd was seen waving at the crowds from another truck.

Meanwhile, Selena Gomez returned home to Texas for her Thanksgiving Day and performed during the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving halftime show.

She sang Walk Like A Champion and Come and Get It before shouting, "Happy Thanksgiving!"
