Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving! Family, amazing food (lots of it) and football. Another Thanksgiving tradition is the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade when giant balloon replicas of our favorite characters will fill the streets of New York.  The parade, which first began in 1924 has an estimated 3.5 million people actually attend the event and over 50 million households watch the parade on TV!

Take a look at this fun retrospective with photographs of the balloons from years past from the New York Daily News.

You can also check out the official parade website which has a cool history section.
