MACY’S Thanksgiving Day parade

I guess SNOOPY is still my favorite.

MACY’S Thanksgiving Day Parade • 2017

On the roof of the DAKOTA APARTMENTS………..NYC sniper riflemen…..trained to shoot terrorists…….at the ready………as MACY’S Thanksgiving Day Parade passes by.


CLICK ON:

 Snoopy.……..he has been aloft in 40 parades………..and he is still my fave.

And SANTA always waves to the nearly four million people lining the streets………all hoping he will climb down their chimneys on December 25th.

BALLOONS lead the Macy’s Parade

WE all love SANTA.……….and Mrs. CLAUS…………but……..

 the BALLOONS take center stage in New York

I invited a few NEIGHBORS to my THANKSGIVING FEAST……….

I think it was a mistake to make an OPEN INVITATION to the people on my street.

I told the doorman to turn them away…..all 2000 of them!

I would have needed 200 turkeys!

MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE

Stepped out on my terrace today to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade .

Weather was clear…..but COLD!  Below freezing!  I had to duck back inside for a hot chocolate.

I always enjoy the view of Central Park over the Dakota apartments.

The big question today was …………”WILL THE BALLOONS FLY?”  

SNOOPY was happy to be aloft.

SECURITY blocked off the street……….trucks filled with salt………so terrorists could not barrel down the street and slam into the crowds.

MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE 2012

From my terrace Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade is fun to watch.

  Down on the streets……3 million people flock to see the parade.

SNOOPY……vs. the Red Baron !

I love the marching bands………

   

45 million turkeys will be eaten today.  Gobble….Gobble!

SMURF…………….but which one?

  Oh Miss Kitty………..you are so pretty !

Ronald McDonald……and yes, I still get an attack for a “Big Mac” ……even on TURKEY DAY !

MACY’S Thanksgiving Day Parade

Looking down from my terrace…………..it”s RONALD McDONALD……….

And we all love his “Big Mac”.

Miss Liberty …….or, at least her upper half !

SNOOPY

The “Wildwest Express”.

What the heck is his name ?

Sorry, ANDY…………all I caught was your feet.  I was in the apartment stuffing a turkey.

Energizer Bunny………..and his batteries were charged.

Smurf

Santa looks like he ate more than just one turkey.

The parade is nearly over….and the crowds keep coming.

And all they get to see are the BALLOONS !
