Macy’s 83rd Thanksgiving Day Parade 2009
The Macy’s 83rd Thanksgiving Day Parade was a memorable event for 2009. The parade featured the usual mix of giant helium balloons, floats, marching bands, and performances by popular singers and dancers that children of all ages enjoyed. But this year also saw new energy and excitement as the parade made its way down New York City’s Central Park West.
The parade began with traditional fanfare – clowns on motorcycles, marching bands from across the country, colorful floats with characters from popular films and TV shows – but also included many innovative elements to make it even more exciting. An expanded balloon line-up featured new characters such as Spiderman, Ronald McDonald, Sailor Mickey and Pillsbury Doughboy; plus there were special performances by some of today’s hottest musical acts like Jimmy Fallon & The Roots, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Gaynor and Andrea Bocelli. All in all, it was a sight to behold!
