Happy Thanksgiving!

EBRPL Cool, EBRPL Events, EBRPL Website

Gobble gobble! Family, delicious food, and football. Another Thanksgiving tradition is the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade when giant balloon replicas of our favorite characters fill the streets of New York. The parade, which began in 1924, has an estimated 3.5 million people actually attend the event and over 50 million households watch the parade on TV!

Take a look at this fun retrospective with photographs of the balloons from years past from the New York Daily News.

You can also check out the official parade website for the 2014 lineup of floats and performers and an interesting history section too with a description year-by-year of this memorable event.

Remember all EBRPL branches are closing at 6 tonight (Wednesday, 11/26) and will be closed tomorrow in observance of Thanksgiving Day. We will resume normal business hours this Friday, November 28.
