Macys Parade 09

As you all know Thanks Giving day is not only a day you spend with your love ones but also it's a day for celebration and a great way to do is by having a parade. Macys has the biggest parade in New york City every Thanks Giving and each year there are more giants helium balloons and characters floating down 5th Ave. This year it's like any other year and the parade will feature 1,500 dancers, lots of school marching bands, cheerleaders, singers and performers, 24 floats, recognize local heroes, Santa Sleigh and many more. Each year Macys choose a character to be the main one for the holiday and this year it is known to be Sailor Mickey; if you're ever at macys almost every corner in the store has the Sailor Mickey around, and it's really an awesome souvenir as well as gift for the kids.

The Performers in the parade include: Bello, Andrea Bocelli, Keke Palmer, Grandma and the cast of the Big Apple Circus, the cast of Hair, Boys Like Girls, DJ Lance Rock and the cast of Yo Gabba Gabba!, Kermit the Frog and Tiffany Thornton, the cast and Muppets of Sesame Street, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, cast of Billy Elliot, Sarah Hughes, Jane Krakowski, cast of Bye Bye Birdie, Ziggy Marley with Judah Marley, Miss America 2009 - Katie Stam, the Radio City Rockettes, Katharine McPhee, Mitchel Musso, The Pizzarelli Quartet, cast of Shrek, and Jay Sean. The best thing about all the performances they are all free.

Today after work like i always do every year I decided to stop by Macys at 34th in NYC to see how are things are going for the parade. Since it was early and it was drizzling I did not get see the dress rehearsal, however i managed to capture the people at work installing all the benches where Matt Lauer will be sitting and the space for the spectators. I also noticed how beautiful and crowded the stores was with all the happy shoppers so i snapped some shots of them...
