NEW YORK — In this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, there were 21 floats, many marching bands and 28 balloons. It was awesome to be there in person, and see everything up close.

We went to the balloon staging on the Upper West Side too.  There were so many people pushing strollers, and many children all eager to see the balloons. They looked funny. Like Charlie Brown’s nose was practically touching the street. And his football was between Kermit the Frog’s long legs.

All the balloons had netting over them to hold them down. On Thursday morning, we went to the parade. It was cold, but not too cold. My favorite balloon was the new Hello Kitty riding in an airplane.  The other balloons that looked really amazing were Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Spider-Man. All of them came down 6th Avenue towards us, and we were looking right at them. All of the balloons had patches, even Hello Kitty, which is new.

But definitely, the most amazing part of the parade was the final float carrying Santa and his reindeer. The float was huge and caught the attention of the entire crowd.  And behind him was another amazing site—at least a thousand cheerleaders dressed in red and white.
