The 93rd annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade kicks off from the corner of West 77th Street and Central Park West in New York City at 9:00 a.m. ET. The annual event brings millions of people to the streets of New York City to celebrate the holiday.
However, this year there are plenty of questions over whether the iconic balloons will be flying high.
Because of the weather forecast which features high winds, the balloons may be grounded. New York authorities prohibit the balloons from floating when winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph.
Unfortunately, the weather forecast projects winds of up to 30 mph, with gusts as high as 50 mph. But a final decision has not yet been made.
“The decision on adding the balloons to the lineup is made by NYPD and Macy’s officials just prior to the start of the parade and takes into account the weather data along the entire parade route and information from nearby weather stations,” Macy’s spokesman Orlando Veras said, via the New York Post.
“We will march on with a parade filled with entertainment for New York and the nation.”
