Black Hills to Broadway

Many newspapers around the country ran similar versions of the same basic story this week: “Local band/musician/student will perform in the 84th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.” The big event is only a week away.

The articles also promise seven new floats and two new balloons. The balloons are characters from “Kung Fu Panda” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” This may be the first and only year I am more excited about a new float than a new balloon. Several South Dakota tourism groups are sponsoring a Mount Rushmore float. My wife and I plan to visit Mount Rushmore next summer as I finish my quest to visit all 50 states.

Some New Jersey schoolkids got to go on an amazing field trip on Tuesday. They toured the Macy’s parade studio and got a preview of the new floats. Remember: floats have wheels, balloons have strings.
