How about a little NYC Thanksgiving fun?


Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.. It is also the 82nd Annual Macy's day parade.

From today's Gothamist-


Tomorrow is the day before Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade which means it's the day to see the parade balloons get inflated! The parade blow-up action is along 77th Street and 81st Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue, around the American of Natural History, starting at around 3PM and ending at 10PM. The crowds can be very intense, so be patient.

New giant balloons this year are Horton, Smurf, and Buzz Lightyear; returning giant balloons are Abby Cadabby, Beethoven, Dora the Explorer, Flying Ace Snoopy, Kermit the Frog, Pikachu, Ronald McDonald, Shrek, SpongeBob SquarePants™and Supercute Hello Kitty. There are also "35 novelty/ornament balloons and balloonicles" (like Cloe the Holiday Clown( and a special giant balloon created from Keith Haring's Figure with Heart.


And of course, the finale is Santa Claus!






Here is where you can go today to see the balloons being inflated. It's quite fun for the kiddies and adults too.

We don't have Thanksgiving in Brazil.
Keith Haring's heart?
I will google it. I have a button of his smiling face with the three eyes...
I'll search for it and put it in my blog for you.
It was given to my ex-husband by Keith in Paris.
Hope you're fine!
Love,
Ana
