Virtual Thanksgiving Day Parade November 26, 2020

 Like everything else in this crazy COVID19 year, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is going to be very different. I thought I would re-post my adventures from last year’s parade since this year there will be no spectators. In 2019 I was lucky to be able to get six bleacher tickets for the parade. Prior to the parade the local weather forecasters were predicting dire wind 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. Whatever you are doing today – please be safe.

WOW, that’s a lotta balloons… I had no idea!

Lover your cornucopia collage. Good photoshop job!

P.S. Change my email address to this one. The one you sent this to (scratchina@…)is soon to be discontinued.

Thank you. So sad about the parade this year. Very nostalgic. My Dad used to take my sister and me to watch it when we were little. Got lost one year and watched it from Macy’s Lost and Found.

Lost and found? That’s quite a memory. Hoping next year is normal

I love your parade pictures(again) According to Google there are usually 16 Big Balloons and 26 Floats. Not this year. Be Happy, Be Safe.
