Macy’s has launched a FREE smartphone app to put the world-famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in the palm of your hand. Search Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on iTunes or GooglePlay and download fabulous facts on the balloons, floats, performers, marching bands, clowns, and more.
You’ll learn, for example, that Snoopy has appeared in 32 parades, more than any other character, and that the beloved beagle is as high as a four-story building and as long as 12 bicycles. The 87th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade features a new Snoopy balloon, flying through New York City with his faithful buddy Woodstock.
Just so you know – The new balloon is the seventh different depiction of Snoopy to take part in the parade. Previous balloons have shown Snoopy as an astronaut, an ice skater (with and without Woodstock); “Millennium Snoopy;” and of course the World War I Flying Ace.
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade app lets you share the Macy’s photos from past parades on Twitter and Facebook, even text or email your favs directly from the app. And it’s free. Oops, we said that already.
And while you are downloading apps on iTunes or GooglePlay, check out the NYC on the Cheap app, where you can search for cheap eats by neighborhood, find stores where you’ll never pay retail, and more.
