Officials will make a game time decision on the balloons. If they are grounded, it would be the first time they haven't flown since 1971, according to The New York Times.
"Spectacle is synonymous with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and each year we aim to create an even bigger one than the last, with incredible must-see entertainment for millions of spectators nationwide," Susan Tercero, executive producer of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, said in a statement.
“Featuring an amazing line-up of high-flying character balloons, jaw-dropping animated floats, world-class marching bands and performance groups, artists covering a variety of musical genres, and of course, the one-and-only Santa Claus, we are ‘Parade Ready’ and can’t wait to take to the streets of New York City to once again herald the arrival of the holiday season.”
