Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloons Come To Life - NYC

On the eve of the United States Thanksgiving day, all of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons are inflated on 77th and 81st Streets between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue in New York City's Upper West Side. The enormous balloons take up two full city blocks. The tradition of slowly bringing giant character balloons to life for the Thanksgiving Day parade dates back to 1927.
