Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons have first test run

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (PIX11) — It’s a sure sign that Thanksgiving is just around the corner!

The big balloons that will be featured in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade were tested out at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford over the weekend.

Hundreds of people gathered in the parking lot on Saturday to get a sneak peak at one of the five new balloons.

The balloons that were tested are Snoopy and Woodstock, Adventure Time’s Finn and Jake, “How To Train Your Dragon” star ‘Toothless,’ and Spongebob Squarepants.

This will be the 37th parade for the famous “Peanuts” dog.

Macy’s annual parade has been going on since 1924.
