Thanksgiving parade balloons face possible grounding over wind forecast

But even though NY is due to be hit by winds up to 30 miles per hour and potentially the coldest low temperature for Thanksgiving since record-keeping started, the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is still on.

The cast of Broadway musical "The Prom" made history as they put on an epic performance during Thursday's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

There were 600 performers in the Spirit of America Dance Stars crew, which represented school dance teams and dance studios from all over the USA, including Holly Springs. They travelled from Columbus, Ohio, for the parade.

The British singer appeared out of sync with the vocals that viewers heard during parts of her televised performance of "Let You Love Me". "We are thrilled that the nation will experience the hard work, focus, creativity and brilliance of our students at one of the country's most cherished holiday celebrations".

In another moment that got attention, a performance from the Broadway musical "The Prom" included a kiss between two female cast members.

"This year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will redefine spectacle with a jaw-dropping mix of must-see entertainment for millions of spectators", said Susan Tercero, executive producer of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, in a press release.

Center Dwight Howard (a recurrence of his gluteal soreness) was limited to seven minutes against the Trail Blazers . They also have better percentages both in field goals (47.2% to 45.3%) and in 3-pointers (38.3% to 32.7%).

Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker (on a motorcycle) will host the TV broadcast of the Macy's parade on NBC.

'Umm, I don't know if y'all know this, but that was live!' Clarkson said on her Instagram Story.

"I'm thankful I get to perform on the coldest freaking Thanksgiving ever... live!". John Piper, vice president of Macy's Parade Studio, told us last night, "Every time we come to an intersection, we're going to make sure it's clear so we never stop in an intersection, then as we go through, we move to the windward side and come out and straighten up again". The coldest on record was in 1871, when the warmest it got was 22 degrees (minus 5 Celsius).

Officials will be monitoring wind to see if giant character balloons such as SpongeBob and Charlie Brown can fly safely.

Thousands of police officers were stationed along the parade route.
