Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
The young, and the young at heart, were delighted by the sights and sounds of marching bands, performers and, of course, giant balloons.
The weather was a sunny 47 degrees.
Some parade-goers had camped out to get a good spot, staying snug in sleeping bags.
Others came well-prepared with folding chairs.
Chicago, Philadelphia and Detroit were among the other big cities rolling out bands, cartoon character balloons and musical extravaganzas.
More than 3 million people attended the popular parade, while an estimated 50 million watched on TV.
Highlights included giant balloons in the likeness of Papa Smurf, Buzz Light Year, Elf on a Shelf and Charlie Brown.
