Crowds celebrate at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
(AP) Spectators of all ages are oohing and ahhing as giant inflated characters wind their way through Manhattan in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.



Thursday's spectacle featured six new giant balloons, including Thomas the Tank Engine, Paddington bear and the Red Mighty Morphin Power Ranger.



It was around 37 degrees with a hint of drizzle and light winds as clowns shot a burst of confetti from canisters to get the show rolling.



The honor of leading the parade went to the Pride of the Mountains Marching Band from Western Carolina University.



The musicians were hoping to set two records: one for the most cymbal players and one for the largest band.



Veteran clown Steve Smith says all the happy kids really "make the parade."
