The public entrance to the Macy's Parade Balloon Inflation is located at 79th Street and Columbus Avenue. For 2015, the balloon inflation will be Wednesday, November 25 from 3-10 p.m.
Always fun. Every year.
So many people. There's a line to get in line. Great for families if you have patient kiddies I suppose.
One of my absolute favorite things to do each year. Get here early - by 3-ish!!
Totally worth it.. Especially if you live on the UWS. A true NY experience.. No matter where you are from! Come at the end of the night to see the balloons in their true form.
Beware of the roid raging cops! Residents are being threatened arrest while trying to go home! This is not #occupywallstreet! #wtf
Please leave your strollers home!
I love it happy thanksgiving
As a NYer my only tip is to stay far far away. No one shoves you on your couch in front of your TV. Make the right choice.
Nice pic's loved it :o)
Entrance is at 79th St
The best way to see the balloons without having to brave the crowds at the parade!
Mad house but definitely a must do if in NYC for thanksgiving
Entrance is at 79th St.
Stay away from the speakers: the holiday music is fine but the sudden announcements can deafen!
Calle Ocho at 446 Columbus is a great place to bring the kids before or after you see the Balloons!!! How about a Mojito or 4?
my tip would be to stay away unless you've packed a years worth of patience in your bag! watch out for strollers!!!
A Macy's worker just told me the balloon inflation won't start until 3PM.
