Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloons May Be Grounded For 2013
Millions of Americans tune in to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but this year the parade could have a very different look.There is a nasty storm headed to the east coast that might keep many of the iconic balloons grounded or keep some floats out of the parade.
According to My Fox New York, parade organizers will be making a “game day decision” on many of the balloons in the parade. After a spectator was hurt in 1997, New York made rules that the giant balloons can’t fly if there are sustained winds of 23MPH or more or gusts above 34MPH.The forecast as of right now: Sustained winds of 20 mph and gusts up to 36 mph.
What would the turkey day parade be without the giant balloons?!
