Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

We didn’t really set out to see the parade, just taking a walk in the park on Thanksgiving morning, but we couldn’t help seeing some of the floats through the trees as we went. Click any image to see them all bigger (mobile device results may vary).

No Floats

81st St and Central Park West, New York

Last year on Thanksgiving I shot from this very same corner where most of the floats turned on to the parade route down Central Park West. (I posted a shot of workmen roping the traffic light and pulling it back into place after the parade.) This year the parade was a tame affair of a few floats pulled mostly by trucks for a block in front of Macy’s and shown on television only with no crowds allowed.
