With the start of the Thanksgiving holiday, the entire United States is in a festive mood. On November 24, the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade spiced up the already festive mood. Participants in various costumes showed off their skills in the parade. The march started on 77th Street, went south to Broadway and finally ended in Herald Square in New York City. The obligatory appearance by Santa Claus at the end of the parade reminded people Christmas is near.
