And we did see them.
We stood on State street near Macy's aka Marshall Fields.
We took the El down very early.
The parade was to start at 8:00.
So away we went on the El.
The parade did not get to our spot until 9:00.
We saw horses of many sizes and listened to bands from all over the country.
We cheered for the Hawks from Austin Texas because their mom's were standing next to us!
It was fun to see their excitement!
Chicago is a busy place. At the same time the parade was going on there was a Thanksgiving morning 8K (race/run). Why 8K? I didn't ask.
But if you go to the parade. Dress warmly. Don't go early.
The balloons were fun to see but I was surprised to see how worn out and sad many of them looked.
I'm so glad we did it...but actually I can cross that off my imaginary bucket list now and I don't even really want to see the Macy's parade like I use to.
I wonder if the girls would want to go back?
"That was nice."
