The new balloons for 2009 are: Sailor Mickey, Ronald McDonald, Spiderman and the Pillsbury Doughboy.

The new floats for 2009 are: the Local Heroes Helping Everyday float, the There’s A Party in My City float and a new Santa’s Sleigh, which is the first new one in 40 years.

Balloon inflation watch: One of the fun things that you can do with your kids is to take them to the American Museum of Natural History on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. The parade organizers start inflating the balloons at 2 or 3pm and work until 10pm.
