Macy’s Thanksgiving parade in pictures: SpongeBob, Snoopy and Pikachu soar above New York | US News

Characters soared from the bottom of the sea to the far reaches of outer space above New York in the 96th Annual Macy’s Parade on Thanksgiving Day.

As always, the event was a delightful exercise in absurdity, creating scenes like Papa Smurf, SpongeBob, and some Pokemon towering over all that was scanned.

As locals and tourists alike gathered in the streets and at their towering windows to watch, Sky News has collected some of the best images from Thursday’s event.
