Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade: Best and worst moments

Aww…we’re looking for a video for it now…

Participants in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade are supposed to look insanely cheery no matter what, but with temperatures in the low 40s and plenty of sun this year, they didn’t have to fake it. I was up at 9 a.m. to catch every corny second of this holiday mainstay, and after three hours of overdosing on scarves, brass sections, and lip-synching, here are some of the moments that stood out.


Harajuku Girl balloon heads sully the festivities: Donning enormous balloon heads on normal human-sized bodies, performers bounced around on a float as Harajuku girls. Did we really need to cross this line? On Thanksgiving?

Oh well…I did find this cute video though with more photos of the float!
