Macy's Parade Balloon Inflation, November 2012


It was the night before Thanksgiving, and all through the city, people were leaving New York in droves. But for those who stayed in the five boroughs, there was the annual treat of watching the cast of the next day's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade take shape around the American Museum of Natural History at the Macy's Parade balloon inflation.

RECOMMENDED: NYC Thanksgiving guide

As well as a close-up view of the stars of the show—including Hello Kitty, Buzz Lightyear and "Companion," the creation of artist KAWS—the public got to see the little (when compared to the enormous balloons, we mean) people who help get the parade up and running. (Side note: One particular gentleman caught our attention. He seemed to have the authority of a distant relative of Ron Swanson. See if you can spot him.)
