And speaking of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, NTD reporter Sarah Matheson was there to give us a closer look at the festivities.
Thousands of New Yorkers flocked to the streets of Manhattan yesterday to celebrate the Macys’ Thanksgiving Day parade.
The huge procession wound its way along Central Park to Herald Square, with as many as 3.5 million spectators lined up along the streets. Others avoided the crowds, watching the action from high up in their office buildings.
These kids loved it, and so did the adults.
[Kelley Calderin, Orlando, Florida]:
“It’s wonderful on TV, but it’s better in person – so happy Thanksgiving.”
[Shirley Wadlow, New Jersey]:
“Oh, we love it. We love it. This is my third year in doing it and I would come back again. I work at Macy’s.”
[Frances Law, Farracquay, New York]:
“I love it. It was like the best thing ever.”
From beaming downtown Manhattan wishing everyone a very happy holiday season this is Sarah Matheson, NTD, New York.
