Winds don’t stop balloons at NYC parade

NCT 127 performs on the Late Late Show

The 93rd Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade began at 9 a.m. ET (6 a.m. PT) and is being broadcast on CBS and NBC. Throughout the parade route, Verizon will use 360-degree cameras and embed augmented-reality Easter eggs, including advertisements for Verizon products ahead of Black Friday promotions.

Astronaut Snoopy is the first big balloon in this year's lineup.

A Ronald McDonald balloon suffered a tear in its left leg owing to strong winds at the start of the parade.

Joanna Mammen and her family came from Bradford County in northern Pennsylvania to revisit the parade she attended every year while growing up in the Bronx.

"Thanksgiving is not only the people I love". They will be flying at lower levels. "It is the oldsters I like", he said.

Metropolis principles require balloons to be grounded if sustained winds exceed 23 miles per hour (37 kph) and gusts exceed 34 miles per hour (55 kph).

Numerous massive helium-inflated balloons require up to 90 handlers and can be challenging to maneuver even in calm weather.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. "It's also a victory for the martyrs who fell", he said. Weeks of political wrangling are expected before a successor to Abdul Mahdi is picked and a new government formed.

Concerns had been mounting earlier in the week over a forecast of strong winds on Thanksgiving Day. "You develop up seeing glimpses on TV, however it completely's something I knew I mandatory to trip".

It features over 130 parade units, including floats, giant helium balloons, animal units, antique cars and fire trucks, and 13 marching bands from IL and Missouri high schools around the area, the Missouri Tigers dance team, plus Santa Claus will make his annual visit to end the parade.

The parade kicked off Thursday morning with a performance by the Broadway cast of "Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of the Temptations". (Mark Lennihan/The Associated Press) Singer Ciara was also on hand for the event, which draws huge crowds.

The character balloons can go as high as 55 feet off the ground or as low as 10 feet.

The rules requiring them to be grounded in high-wind conditions came after wind blew a "Cat in the Hat" balloon into a lamppost near Central Park in 1997, critically injuring a woman.

In the 2005 parade, a enormous M&M parade bounced off a building and went on to hit a light pole, tearing a part of it down and injuring an 11 and 26-year-old girls with a set of chipped teeth and cuts in need of stitches.

In 2017, a rush on a calm day sent a small ball to a tree branch. That one popped and fell harmlessly onto the crew.
