Before heading to Boston for Friendsgiving, I stopped by the staging area for the Macy's parade.
Lucky ducks who live on W. 77th Street get a crowd-free view of the balloons taking shape.
In this photo, Frieda the Dachshund and the KoolAid Man seem to be good friends. I hope they are, in real life.
Macy's signature stars, Kermit the Frog (is that a yoga pose? Is he praying? Looking for a contact lens?), Mother Goose, and Sailor Mickey (trapped under a net!)
Spidey, Ronald McDonald's shoe, and the Energizer Bunny. Only one of these balloons is a super hero (the other two are product placements) but I think we can agree that they ALL save lives.
So fun to see all of these characters up-close! Hope your Thanksgiving was full of fellowship, warmth, and mashed potatoes. Mine certainly was, and I'm so thankful for it.
