A Thanksgiving Day Tradition is back in full force

The 95th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be back this year and better than before. Last year because of the pandemic the 2 1/2 mile parade route was shortened down to just one block and no spectators were allowed.

What's Happening This Year

This year the parade will travel 2 1/2 miles through Manhatten. It will feature 15 giant character balloons, 28 floats, 36 novelty and heritage inflatables, more than 800 clowns, 10 marching bands and nine performance groups, and everyone's favorite jolly guy Santa Claus.

I'm hoping that having a year off won't cause any issues with the balloon handlers.
We don't want another Barney balloon incident as we had in 2007.
