Parade Preview

Since we live only a half block away from where the Macy's Day Parade is set up, hubster and I got up at half past o'dark to take some photos.





We walked down one block where the balloons are kept under nets till the parade kicks off.





We saw Macy's workers in their Thanksgiving attire:






But, we really got up so early to see the floats:








Then it was home to take a nap before cooking up the bird.

Have a good one, everybody!

Thanks for the GREAT pictures. I loved seeing them all, but especially good old Kermit.

I think you got the best view of the parade -- early and before everyone else was there :D

Thanks so much for sharing! That's a side of the parade most of us will never see. I'm glad it was a nice day.

OOH what a fun post! Thank you for sharing. I lived in North Jersey for 5 years, but never braved traffic to go in for the parade or New Year's in Times Square - just toooo many people for me; crowds give me the willies LOL
