A Must Do the Night Before Thanksgiving in NYC

by Hannah Berner

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is just about as connected to Thanksgiving as turkey is.

Each year tons of people flock to New York City to see the parade, but there may be something that is even cooler than seeing the parade itself. And that’s seeing the balloons being blown up the night before.


I found out about this a few years ago. One rainy night before Thanksgiving I made the trip to 81st Street on the West Side by the American Museum of Natural History to see it in person. And it was like being a kid in a candy store!

There they were. Snoopy. Spiderman. You name it, the characters were there getting blown up for the big show. On one hand it’s totally bizarre to see, and on the other the most amazing thing. It almost didn’t seem real.

If you ever find yourself in New York City the day before Thanksgiving, please try to check this out first hand. I promise you won’t be let down.
