It's Thanksgiving, So On With the Season!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty - Atlantic Shore

Thanksgiving starts for many in New Jersey (particularly north Jersey) this afternoon with a trip through the tunnel and on up to 77th and Columbus, arriving at NYC's the Museum of Natural History.  That’s where the giant balloons are inflated for tomorrow’s 84th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

The balloon inflation draws thousands, and offers a chance to see these characters come to life!  There will be two new balloon characters this year in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade…a balloon from Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Po from Kung Fu Panda.

For some the parade isn't all about balloons so there will also be seven new floats, marching bands, clowns and other performers.  

Let's not forget it's called the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade and in keeping with tradition Santa is up last, signalling the start of the Christmas shopping season.

Me, I’m all about the balloons.  But I’ll miss Underdog, Rocky & Bullwinkle, and if I go to my WABAC (pronounced Way-Back) machine, Felix the Cat; the characters of my youth!


Happy Thanksgiving from the Jersey Shore, and on with the Season!

Didn't even think about the balloon inflation being an event in and of itself! 

But I'm watching the parade on TV now!  Nice and warm in my living room.  No coat needed here.

That's cool.  I tend to enjoy the balloons myself so I would love to see them being inflated.  Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
