Bringing her enthusiasm to the annual Turkey Day tradition, Jessica Simpson was among the stars soaking up attention during the 84th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday morning (November 25).

Held in New York City, the "Do You Know?" singer joined fellow guests including Keri Hilson and Victoria Justice while proudly partaking in the holiday festivities with floats including the Pillsbury Doughboy, Snoopy, Spider-Man and a Smurf cruising along the Big Apple streets.

As for others partaking in the Macy's parade, the show included performances by Kanye West, Gladys Knight and Juanes, with celebrity appearances by the likes of Miranda Cosgrove, Kylie Minogue, Jimmy Fallon and Miss USA Rima Fakih.

The event draws tens of thousands of spectators, with its inception coming in 1924 "when employees from the department store marched in costume from Harlem to Macy's flagship store on 34th Street."

The parade has taken place every year since aside from 1942-44 when helium and rubber were at a premium during WWII.
