Macy's Thanksgiving Parade
Summary:

Enjoy the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and look for the super sniffing canines on paw patrol to keep everyone safe…

Happy Thanksgiving — especially to anyone who is working today, human or canine. Hope someone saves you a plate (tail wag!) Enjoy the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and look for the super sniffing canines on paw patrol to keep everyone safe. Watch a great Thanksgiving movie with your best friend later. Chow! (Chow Chow? Chow down? Ciao?)


AS MANY AS a million spectators turn out for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Another 200,000 show up the night before to watch the enormous balloons inflate. Keeping New York City safe on an ordinary day is challenging enough; locking down a massive parade route is all the more so.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
