    Thousands flock to see balloons readied for Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter juliacr captured these lively images of enormous helium balloons being inflated on Wednesday night for Macy's annual Thanksgiving day parade in New York City. "Every year, millions come out to see the parade, but among New Yorkers the night before is the real party because it's easier to get close to the balloons," she said. "Many come to see the balloons inflated and then camp out along Central Park West to get a good view of the parade itself."
