The parade is one of the most magical times of the year for little kids, and grown ups alike. There are stars galore both on the floats, and on the ground. Some sing, some dance, and some just wave. The balloons of favorite cartoons and animated movie stars bring kinds to the edges of their seats. Pop star lip-sync to their most famous song at the time, or sometimes sing a Christmas song or two.
Some Broadway shows give little snippets of their most famous number during their brief time in front of the Macy's building. The Rockettes are always performing their chicken routine for all the people in the crowd, and at home.
I have never actually seen the play in person, but I have watched it every year that I could. I just love the way the entire city and world comes together to watch these magnificent balloons come down one of the greatest streets in the world. Plus all the little boys and girls get to see Santa finish off the parade like he has done ever since 1933.
Have you ever watched the Thanksgiving Day Parade? Would you want to go see it in person?
Peace and Love,
