Macy*s Thanksgiving Parade 2008
The Event that kids look forward to each year is right around the corner!
Macy*s Thanksgiving Parade
Next Thursday, November 27th is the 82nd Annual Macy*s Thanksgiving Day parade! And for almost 50 years, the floats have been designed and manufactured in our very own Hoboken – at 1505 Willow Ave (which used to be a Tootsie Roll factory).
Here’s a couple floats getting some fresh air yesterday: Walt Disney’s Bolt as well as the Sunshine Theme, sponsored by Jimmy Dean.
A total of eight new floats and four new balloons this year. Remember, back in 2006 there was a helium shortage that threatened the balloons from even appearing? This year there will be 13 airborne masterpieces for all to enjoy! Yay Helium!
