Everyone knows about watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, but only savvy folks know that you can watch the balloons for the parade get inflated the day before!

In the blocks surrounding the American Museum of Natural History, the balloons come to life as they get filled with helium the afternoon/evening before the parade. It's a wonderful opportunity to see the balloons up-close and well worth experiencing. We've put together a helpful guide to the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade Balloon Inflation with hours, directions and plenty of tips if you're planning to attend.
