The MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE is the nation's biggest and most anticipated holiday celebration.

Police in the city will keep tabs on wind gauges situated along the parade route and will determine whether the 16 helium-filled balloons set to fly have to be at a lower altitude, or can't fly at all, depending on whether wind gusts get too fast, The Associated Press reported Wednesday. The NYPD will be monitoring the wind speed to determine if they need to pull the plug on the large balloons.

Bystanders refused to let the cold put a damper on watching the parade, breaking out blankets and sleeping bags to watch the balloons, bands and floats go by.

They were the last performers before Saint Nick's float rolled through the annual parade, capping the end of the three-hour broadcast by NBC. I have never watched the parade, because I think getting up early on a day off is a sin, but we can all watch a livestream from the comforts of our homes below. The parade coverage will air on both the CBS ad NBC network, showcasing the latest balloon floats and parade performers.

Macy's apologized later Thursday, tweeting that "several recording artists experienced technical difficulties that negatively impacted their performance".

To be fair, the parade experienced some technical difficulties that negatively impacted the performances, but still, Rita was singled out.

Representatives for Macy's and broadcaster NBCUniversal haven't immediately responded to inquiries.
