  • Thanksgiving parade balloons face possible grounding over wind forecast

Chicago's Uncle Dan's parade is set to start at 8 a.m. CST and is scheduled to last for three hours until 11 a.m. "These are some of the themes reflected in our musical comedy and we are very proud to be the very first LGBTQ kiss on the Thanksgiving Day Parade". The massive balloon was almost pushed into the sidewalk where hundreds of fans were lined up to watch the parade. I have never watched the parade, because I think getting up early on a day off is a sin, but we can all watch a livestream from the comforts of our homes below. The NYPD will be monitoring the wind speed to determine if they need to pull the plug on the large balloons.

Today is Thanksgiving, a day full of traditions like turkey, family dinner and the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The Ohio State University Marching Band tweeted photos of them on their way to NYC, and then some of them taking in the sights.

There's also a chance NY could see a record low temperature on Thanksgiving Day: Accuweather is predicting a morning low temperature of 21 degrees and an afternoon high of 27. "I'm so excited to be here with Brynn!"

Paradegoers hoping to see balloons flying over New York City on Thursday morning could have their spirits deflated as gusty winds could wind up grounding the attractions.

Police Commissioner James O'Neill said thousands of officers would be stationed along the parade route.

The floats and marchers stepped off from Central Park West and 77th Street at 9 a.m.

Others in the lineup include Bad Bunny, Kane Brown and Ella Mai, Pentatonix, Rita Ora, Sugarland, Anika Noni Rose, Barenaked Ladies, Leona Lewis, Fifth Harmony's Ally Brooke, Bazzi, Ashley Tisdale and Carly Pearce.
