Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The 85th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade wowed the crowds and delighted spectators earlier this morning on the streets of Manhattan. A 40-foot Sonic the Hedgehog helium balloon led the procession as it bobbed and weaved down Central Park West followed by Buzz Lightyear, Spongebob Squarepants, Kermit the Frog, Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty, and more. Entertainers including Avril Lavigne, Cee Lo Green, Mary J.Blige, and Neil Diamond kept the crowds lively with renditions of their songs. This year’s parade boasted 14 massive helium balloons, 40 smaller balloons, 27 floats, hundreds of clowns, and 1,600 cheerleaders. Officials estimated a viewing audience of 50 million people on television.
