2012 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade Balloon Pics

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

I wanted to post some photos yesterday, but I’ve been in Minneapolis since Tuesday visiting my brother and his kids and have been tied up with family stuff.

You may have already had your fill of balloon photos from various media outlets at this point, but I had to post at least a few.

The photo above is from Gaby, Andrew, and Tyler as Spider-Man traveled down Central Park West and passed W. 64th Street.

Below are a mix of photos from Wednesday’s balloon inflation night and Thursday’s parade.

Row 1: Mickey & Sponge Bob from Gaby/Andrew/Tyler, and the Pilsbury Doughboy from Laura

Row 2: @JLPinNYC snapped Charlie Brown & Kermit, while Zubair captured spied Hello Kitty

Row 3: @ebdoherty got up-close-and-personal with Spider-Man, same with Dione and Papa Smurf. Lucien snapped Santa on Central Park West.

Row 4: MUW Kevin A. was handling one of the balloons in the parade and had different perspective than most, @MicahMcCain in line on Wednesday night, and Amelia catching crews at 82nd moving traffic lights back into their proper position.

Thanks to everyone for sending in photos — apologies if I didn’t get a chance to use yours.
