My favorite Thanksgiving day activity...other than stuffing my face, is watching the balloon floats in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade!
Most of the rest of the parade (the music on the floats is always unbelievably horrible!) is never as impressive as the balloon floats.
I believe this cutie was brought out of "retirement" a few years ago.
Yes! Halloween represents!
Some of my favorite modern day balloon floats are Tim Burton's B. Boy, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Snoopy, and Paul Frank's Julius.
I wish I owned that dinosaur one...I would keep it tethered in my front yard for decoration during the off times that I wasn't having it float above my car as I drive around town.
