Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

by Shyla Harless
   Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012 at 9 a.m., the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will begin on NBC.
   “I never watch the parade because I am the chef on Thanksgiving dinner for my family,” English teacher Jason Zollman said.
   The parade is in its eighty sixth year with 3 million people in New York and 50 million watching from their homes. The parade started in 1924, and has only not happened from 1940 to 1945 because of the war in Europe. The route of the parade has only changed once and that was in 2009.
   “It is part of our family tradition, and it brings back happy memories from years past,” chemistry teacher Anne Brewer said.
    The oldest balloon in the parade is the Snoopy balloon. The parade lineup is balloons, floats, balloonicles, clowns, novelty balloons, performance groups and marching bands.
  “My favorite part of the parade is the marching bands because I am in color guard here at the school,” junior Mackensie Letourneau.
      Don’t forget to tune into NBC and catch the parade!
