Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade 2019

Start of the 2019 Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade with confetti flying around the turkey balloon.

The balloons flew, if lower than usual, as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade rolled on after an anxious weather watch Thursday. Spectators lined up a half-dozen deep along the route on a breezy but beautiful fall day, with leaves and confetti swirling in the wind. The parade, one of the city’s most popular events, features about 8,000 marchers, two dozen floats and marching bands, ending with an appearance from Santa Claus. [AP Photo/Mark Lennihan]
