The 89th edition of the Thanksgiving Day Parade was large, 8,000 people took part, decorative with theme floats and balloons, with top line entertainment with Mariah Carey taking center stage.
Mariah waved to her fans from a nutcracker suite lined float with toy building blocks and big red bow. Mariah dressed in a red ballgown and short white coat. She performed the Christmas classic, “All I want for Christmas is you.”
Before the singing sensation appeared, some of the more prominent balloons featured were the NYPD Cop, SpongeBob Squarepants, Ronald McDonald, Power Ranger, as well as all time favorite, Snoopy.
Prince Royce was the favorite of all the young fans as he sang “Stuck on a Feeling” on a float with a outcropping of a Big Apple emerging out of the New York skyline.
As the procession ended in Macy’s Herald Square, Mariah, now 45, stood tall, a flesh and blood princess soaking in the moment at the heart of New York City.
