It’s no news to New Yorkers that Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a huge undertaking.
Right now thousands of volunteers are in training to make sure everything goes smoothly.
The clowns are currently being trained at Macy’s Clown University by a Big Apple Circus clown.
Meanwhile over in New Jersey huge balloons are being readied for their big day in New York’s Streets. 50-80 volunteers are needed for each balloon and they are mainly Macy’s staff, friends and family.
People love doing this and return each year to hold that balloon in place. If you would like to become a volunteer, ask someone you know who works at Macy’s to sponsor you but it can take up to several years to get on the roster.
You have to be fit, it’s hard work walking along holding those big balloons steady, so do your push-ups and get into shape. LIKE everything to do with Macy’s Parade.
