85th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Tim Burton's Boy B

Millions of spectators lined the streets of Manhattan this morning for the 85th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. For many families, the parade has become a family tradition. The parade got its start in 1924 and included live animals. It was not until 1927 that the live animals were replaced by giant helium balloons. Since the beginning, the balloons have been based on popular cultural characters and holiday themes. This year, Tim Burton's "Boy B." balloon made an appearance in the parade.

You were standing right in the spot I wanted to go go in, but my friends all wanted to be at Columbus Circle so that's where we went again this year :-/
