Who Is Going To Be At The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade?
One thing I will remember growing up is the TV on in the background with the parade on while wonderful smells began to waft through the house in preparation for Thanksgiving dinner. This year is the 87th annual Macy's Thanksgiving parade, and they just put out a press release outlining the new additions to this year's lineup.
On top of the normal balloon favorites like:
Buzz Light Year

The Elf on the Shelf®
Sonic the Hedgehog™
There will also be additions like a 47 foot giant hot air balloon celebrating the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of OZ™. There will also be characters from the classic film like Dorothy™, Scarecrow™, Tin Man™, Cowardly Lion™, and The Wicked Witch of the West™.
Also, Thanksgiving this year falls on the first night of Hanukkah. In celebration there will be a special spinning balloonicle dreidal. This is the first time in the parade's history.
