James Lord, 2023 Client

We really enjoyed our Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade weekend with Bucket List Events. The venue for the parade was excellent with viewing area right on 6th Avenue.

It was so well planned out and executed by Ben and his staff. The hardest part in any business is matching ‘dollar cost’ to the value in experience and this team did this perfectly. It was absolutely worth it.

I wanted to thank you for a well organized affordable trip and for accommodating our last minute requests.

The Rockettes Christmas show and Moulin Rouge performances were great and our seats were perfect. Breakfast/brunch and parade viewing were excellent as well.

Bucket List Events was great! I considered doing it myself but I wanted it to be perfect and perfect it was. I wouldn't change a single thing. Bucket List went above and far beyond my expectations. My wife was so happy she actually started crying when she talked about the trip. Here are some pics of the parade from our window seat. Plus, we could go down stairs for brunch and our own private spot on the sidewalk to watch the parade. Did I mention the tickets to Hamilton? Center stage and eye level with the actors. Perfect, perfect, perfect!!
