Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade 2013: Balloons will fly despite weather

There were some concerns about whether or not the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade would have the beloved balloons flying above the crowd due to strong wind gusts of up 20 miles per hour, but shortly after the parade kicked off it was announced that the New York City officials had given the green light for the balloons to fly.

The balloons will be forced to fly a little lower to avoid getting involved in any huge gusts, but they will still be visible for those on the parade route, which is all you can ask for.
