Thanksgiving day Parade #2: New York…


After we accidentally arrived in Plymouth for America’s second biggest Thanksgiving parade it seemed appropriate that we should have timed our return to New York to coincide with the biggest! The fact that the parade passed within a couple of blocks of our apartment was a bonus and to top things off the weather even continued to be fine, sunny and mild (if 8 degrees can be called mild).
The giant inflatables are as impressive as they seem when the news at home shows a quick snippet each year… and they keep coming- more than 20 altogether. Then there are the celebrities scattered through the parade although we didn’t know most of them there were a stars worthy of name dropping; Whoopi Goldberg, Chris Isaac, The Wanted, Jimmy Fallon, Don McLean, Flo Rida and even young Aussie pop star Cody Simpson (did I get it right Meg?)
Lots of fun. But you know, I think I liked Plymouth’s better!
