Attending the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade 2011

Jump to last reply

Let's Have A Parade!

I've read the posts on this site started in past years about the parade, and there are great tips I'm sure still apply to this years parade - but wanted to start a discussion for those attending this years parade to see if new members to the site had more tips for us attending the parade.

Please don't reply with "stay home or in your hotel room to watch it on t.v."

YES - we know it's going to be crowded and crazy, but the parade is the main reason we are flying to New York. We know we will be standing and waiting and will be in a mob of people.

So... with that in mind - please share any tips on where you've watched the parade and if that was a good location of if there is a different area to try.

Also comments on the balloon inflation the day before would be helpful.

Thanks!
