from Jeff P., our “P” stands for Parades specialist, on the Big One coming again this Thursday to downtown Manhattan. I always say, “keep Manhattan, just give me that country-side”, but JP has a different theory and here it is, just in time for this year’s Turkey Day celebration.

Hey, this year’s parade will be better than ever, with brand new balloons, brand new floats and some of the biggest stars on the parade on nbc.35 novelty/ornament balloons, balloonheads and balloonicles; 10 marching bands; 24 floats; and a host of celebrity performers.

A pleasing spectacle that features 1,500 cheerleaders, dancers, singers and performers; 800 clowns; 15 giant character helium balloons; 35 novelty/ornament balloons, balloonheads and balloonicles; 10 marching bands; 24 floats; and a host of celebrity performers.

Rise of the Giants
The sky above the streets of Manhattan will be alive once more filled with colorful friends as the Parade’s signature giant helium character balloons soar on Thanksgiving morning. The line-up of giants features a who’s who of children’s classic characters from comic book superheroes to the stars of television, films and American pop culture. New arrivals to the Thanksgiving Day balloonfest are everyone’s favorite neighborhood super-heroâ„¢, the web slinger himself, Spider-Man®; the ever cute and cuddly Pillsbury Doughboy®; America’s favorite clown Ronald McDonald®; and the top mouse on deck, Sailor Mickey Mouse.

    This is the greatest news to ever be on this site. I am from New York and I used to work at Macy’s. The parade was our lifeline in the borough. We love Manhattan and we love this article. Such good memories of the City called New York, the greatest city in the world.

    Please give us more of this and less sports. Sports is for the birds and for the fans in Philly, Toronto and in Baltimore. Give us more features and less stuff on teams and sports and games.

    Mr. Michael Bloomberg and Mr. Rudy Guliani would be proud to see this release and they should be sent a copy of it.

    I look forward to more from the Parade stories.
