Lotta’ Hot Air

November 25th, 2010 by ninja

Sung took the kids to one of the quintessential NY Thanksgiving activities – not Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but to watch the inflation of the parade’s balloons the evening before. The spectator scene was a lot more crowded than they had anticipated, and the access a lot more restricted. Mika wasn’t in the best of moods, as you can see in the above composite, but her spirit brightened when she saw Hello Kitty up close. All in all, this might be a better experience when the kids are a bit older (or better rested … or with both parents in attendance).

    Come to the parade itself! We have done both and find the beginning of the parade very doable, especially if you are walking across the park from UES. We got there at 9:10 and still had a great spot.

    I was wondering how you got so close when i saw the pics…
    If we’re not slaving all day over food next year, we shall try to do the parade in the morning – maybe together with you guys?
