Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloon Inflation

Last week at this time, families headed to the Upper West Side to watch the inflation of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons—an annual tradition for many, including blogger Lance Somerfeld of NYC Dads Group. Kids and parents looked on in awe as Kermit the Frog, Hello Kitty and Mickey Mouse came to life. Click through our slide show to see the photos from the popular night before Thanksgiving event. If your crew didn't make it this year, make sure to put it on the calendar for 2013. Just keep in mind that the event gets crowded, so get there early!
