Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade May Not Fly Balloons

Macy's Unveils New Balloons For The 93rd Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade®

The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade may not be able to fly their iconic balloons this year.

Before you get too upset, the reason the balloons may not fly is because of winds that could reach up to 23 mph with gusts up to 34 mph on Thanksgiving Day. There are usually 16 giant balloons of some of your favorite animated characters, but forecasters predict the winds could bring that to a halt. The new rule for balloon flight was started back in 199 after four people were injured by the Cat in the Hat.
