The Best and Worst of Macy's Thanksgiving Parade

By amywindsor |

Spiderman floating above the streets of New York = Parade Perfection.

With Thanksgiving finally just days away (and after three weeks of Christmas wind-up, doesn’t it seems like it’s taken forever to get here?), it’s time to start getting pumped up for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.

The most celebrated parade of the year, the balloons are the showpieces that people get excited for and can usually be used as a pop culture primer on what’s hot that year (or what movie has the most promotional dollars to spend, at the very least).

With so much money on the line, in construction and parade fees, it is rare to have a misstep, but they can’t ALL be winners can they?

Among all the amazing balloons that make us ooh! and aah!, there will always be some balloons that leave people scratching their heads and wondering … What the heck was THAT?

I'd be happy if the entire parade was made up of Muppets, but I think everyone can agree that Kermit is the King of Macy's Day balloons.
