Country music will be well represented at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
You can check out the 92nd annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC at 9 a.m. EST on Turkey Day.
- Did you know that the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade initially began as a Christmas parade?
- Did you know that Macy's used to release the balloons into the air after the parade, in the hopes they would just explode in the atmosphere? They would reward those who found the balloons with $100.
- Macy's is the world's number-two consumer of helium. You can imagine why!
- It takes 90 minutes to inflate a large parade balloon and roughly 90 people to hold it.
- Keep a lookout for the Pillsbury Doughboy balloon this year. According to Macy’s, if he wereactually made of dough, he’d make the equivalent of about 4 million crescent rolls.
