There’s something new for this year’s 86th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade — a FREE app that gives you real-time information on the exact location of Santa, your favorite high school marching band or balloon. There’s also a neat feature, Elf-o-matic, which allows users to impose your own face, or your kid’s face, on a balloon such as Sponge Bob, Kung Fu Panda or Spiderman. The real-time Santa tracker and other parade information starts when the parade starts. Click here for NYCOTC information on the new parade route for 2012. The App is from MyCityWay.
