    Smokey Bear is supposed to communicate an important message about wildfire safety. But viewers were talking about his balloon at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for a totally different reason this year: his looming, brawny, unsettling hotness. As the giant floating bear floated over the streets of New York City Thursday, spectators took to social media to ask why the iconic shirtless character had been made to look unusually swole this year with particularly bulging pec muscles. As one Twitter user write: “Since when is Smokey Bear Zaddy bait?” Another asked simply: “Why is Smokey Bear trying to look sexy?” Created in 1944, Smokey Bear has served as a stalwart public service announcement about the dangers of unplanned wildfires ever since. With his slogan—“only YOU can prevent forest fires”—Smokey has raised awareness about a problem which continues to destroy wildlife and infrastructure on a mind-boggling scale. Over 62,000 fires have burned more than seven million acres in the U.S. this year alone, according to National Interagency Fire Center stats. But as the necessity of wildfire safety has increased, so too...

    Bus and trailers that were expected to be used in the 96th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City have been burnt to a crisp in a 'suspicious' fire, but it won't affect the celebrations.  A groundskeeper noticed the vehicles parked at Royal Buses Inc. had gone up in flames when they arrived around 6am on Monday, lighting up around seven buses and shooting flames through the parking lot.  It is unknown how the fire started and investigators are calling it 'suspicious' as a precaution.  The buses were supposed to be used starting on Tuesday in parade efforts, but it won't affect the annual event as the company, On Time Elite, has other vehicles parked in different locations. Those are expected to be used in the parade now.  Video of the event shows a ladder truck dousing the flames, while firefighters used hoses on the ground to control the blaze.  Seven buses and trailers went up in flames in Kearny, New Jersey, on Monday in a 'suspicious' fire.

    There were floats, there were balloons, there were Broadway musical numbers, there were crowds standing shoulder to shoulder; after a dismal 2020 showing, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade returned to its pre-pandemic glory Thursday morning. “Spectators, shut out in 2020, lined the route again,” hailed the Associated Press. “High school and college marching bands from around the country were invited back to the lineup; most of last year’s performers were locally based to cut down on travel. The giant balloons, tethered to vehicles last year, got their costumed handlers back.” Though the Thanksgiving Day Parade went forward as planned in 2020, the show was marked by a noticeable absence of cheering crowds, high school marching bands from around the country, and the 2.5-mile parade route.

    Getty Balloons float down Central Park West during the 91st Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Few things are more synonymous with Thanksgiving than the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. As families and friends gather around their televisions, they will be greeted with six new balloons. “Since 1927 the world’s most popular characters have been transformed into high-flying art in the sky,” Macy’s explained in a press release. “Inspired by marionettes, the Parade’s balloons first debuted as upside down puppets filled with air and carried on sticks, before taking flight with the addition of helium. Over time the inflatables morphed to encompass balloonheads, hybrid inflatables with vehicles inside (balloonicles) and tandem tricycles (trycaloons).” This year’s additions bring some of the biggest characters in popular culture to the sky, as well as two new heritage balloons.

    Macy’s / Twitter Snoopy and Captain Kirk both appeared in the 1968 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. For Americans all over the nation, the Thanksgiving holiday represents a time for families to gather together and appreciate what they have. Sometimes that means a good meal featuring the traditional fare, including cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, stuffing, and turkey.  While eating is a big part of the day, what is on the television too plays a significant role as well. The National Football League has thrown its flag in the middle of Thanksgiving, broadcasting three games.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been synonymous with the holiday for nearly 100 years. Over that time, it has gone from wild animals, to mega floats, to a balloon theft by a plane. CBS2’s Steve Overmyer has many more surprising parade facts. READ MORE: Preview Of The Macy's Thanksgiving Day ParadeAhh, the splendor, pageantry and helium-filled magnificence. The Macy’s parade started in 1924 and was only two blocks long. The animals weren’t made of rubber. They were on loan from the Central Park Zoo. “It must’ve been so magical and unbelievable. Interestingly enough, by 1927 they stopped with the zoo animals because they scared the children along the way,” said Valerie Paley, chief historian for the New York Historical Society. Originally known as “The Christmas Parade,” it was a way for the nation’s largest store to give the season of shopping a jumpstart. “Culminating with a Santa Claus at the very end of the parade unveiling the holiday windows on 34th Street,” Paley said.

Dubbed “The Heartwarming Holiday Countdown,” the float is a three-dimensional calendar counting down the days of December until Christmas. It’s decked out with some of the most iconic symbols of Christmas from snowmen to nutcrackers to stockings hung by a blazing fireplace.

In a video on Hallmark Channel’s website, John Piper, the Vice President of Macy’s Parade Studio, explains that all floats are created at the Macy’s Studio in New Jersey and then transported to Manhattan.
