More than a million spectators viewed the 82nd annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade which wound its way along 2.5 miles from New York's Central Park West to Herald Square.
Some of the new attractions this year were Buzz Lightyear, the action-figure astronaut from "Toy Story," Horton, the elephant famililar to Dr. Seuss readers, and a five-story Smurf. The usual suspects such as Shrek, Kermit and the Energizer Bunny also drew cheers and stares.
