A MIghty Windy Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade December 1, 2019

I was lucky to be able to score six bleacher tickets for the parade. Prior to the parade the local weather forecasters were predicting dire circumstances for the balloons. Would they fly or wouldn’t they fly? Turns out they did fly (sort of). Most of the balloons were horizontal and it was very tricky to try to contain them. Kudos to the balloon handlers for generally keeping them afloat. My family loved the parade despite the cold, the wind and the two hour wait before it began. Hope you had a warm, cozy, yummy Thanksgiving with family and friends – I know we did.

What a score : Six Tickets!!! I can only imagine how cold it was, and I guess that horizontal balloons are better than NO balloons???
Poor Ronald, I heard that he broke his leg? Great pictures, I can almost see how they are constructed. THANKS.

Fabulous photos. Brings back memories. My Dad took my sister and me to the parade many times many years ago. Even watched the parade one year from the lost and found. My aunt and uncle took us instead of dad.

“Lucky!?” Great shots from that vantage. How was looking the Grinch eye to eye?
