I have been watching the Macy's Day Parade since I was a little girl. To me it is the beginning of the holiday season. As I got older I was excited to see my husband in the parade and another year, my daughter was in the parade. They both belonged to Drum Corps, that is some of the huge bands that march down the street in the parade. They were in different bands. My husband played a horn and my daughter twirled the flags, rifles and sabres. They loved doing that parade even though it was very long and they were gone all day. Lucky for both of them the weather was nice. Some years it rained or snowed. That parade is one of the biggest parades in New York City. It ends with Santa Claus. Great for kids of all ages, like me.

@ramapo17 My sister once lived in New York City and my mom told her she should not come home for Thanksgiving because she was coming home to move back here at the end of that year. Then they said it was so cold and windy in NYC on the news that they were inflating a lot of the balloons. I felt si bad because I heard that on the 5 am news then when it was light I went out to get the newspaper it was mild here, and the sky was all blue with big cottony clouds It was gorgeous here I forgot to mention it rained i NYC that year, too!
