You know it’s holiday season when the huge turkey in the sky flies through New York City.
The people who put together the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade say they’re ready to party.
“It really is the best time of year for us. Everything is finally coming to life. We can’t wait,”CBS News interviewed Kathleen Wright, operations director.
While fans will still get to see their favorite mainstay floats, there are some new additions this year, including this one for the kids – the popular Baby Shark.
“This is a first of its kind float and balloon,”Will Coss, executive Producer, stated to WCBS. “Who better than Baby Shark to combine them both and he’s flying high above while grandma and grandpa are below.”
Although there are many characters that will leave, the parade is an annual tradition that keeps people coming back year in and year out to enjoy the holiday spirit.
“The goal is to create moments that are memorable, instantly recognizable, have a touch of parade, a celebration of all things whimsy and all things Thanksgiving Day,”Coss added.
The parade starts at 9 a.m. on Central Park West and wraps up at noon in front of Macy’s on 34th Street.
