This year's parade it going to feature both inflatable floats and regular floats, over 50 of them in total. In addition to floats that have been a part of the parade before, there are some new floats, including a new rocking horse inflatable float from last year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. The floats will be ridden by princesses and cupcakes, cowboys and princes, giant crayons and Christmas trees, clowns (120 of them!) and Santa on his sleigh!

It was fun to get to look around and see everything up close. This is an event that requires year-round planning and preparation, and I can't wait to see the results of everyone's hard work! Now we're even more excited about the parade on Friday! The Seattle Macy's Holiday Parade starts at 9AM on Friday and will last approximately one hour. It begins at 7th and Pine, travels down parts of 5th and 4th Avenues and ends up at the downtown Macy's store. Hope to see you there!
