According to a post on Facebook by the Holly Springs School of Dance, it was 20 degrees in NY when the crew from the Raleigh area were told to hit their marks.

And it's a good thing the parade went ahead, at least from a tourism perspective: NY remains the No. 1 destination for tourists traveling on the Thanksgiving holiday, and undoubtedly the iconic Macy's parade is a big draw.

SpongeBob SquarePants, Charlie Brown, the Grinch and other big balloons were cleared for takeoff just before the parade, although some of them floated at noticeably lower altitudes above the people holding their tethers, like the outstretched hand of the Greg Heffley ("Diary of a Wimpy Kid") balloon that appeared to hit some of his handlers on their wool cap-covered heads.

In accordance with city rules, the balloons will be pulled from the air if sustained winds exceed 23 miles per hour and gusts exceed 34 miles per hour.

The dancers performed their routine to the holiday classic song "Winter Wonderland". "When a group of eccentric Broadway actors hear her story, they travel to the community in an earnest-if possibly misguided-attempt to correct the injustice".

Thursday was one of New York City's coldest Thanksgivings, with National Weather Service data showing the temperature peaked at 27 degrees (minus 2 Celsius). The coldest on record was in 1871, when the high was 22 degrees.

"No one else is singing live for the Macy's parade except Kelly Clarkson, actual queen", wrote one Twitter user.

Fans of the animated series will notice that the balloon depicts Goku in Super Saiyan Blue to promote the release of the 20th animated film in the series' history, Dragon Ball Super: Broly.

A city advisory had warned revelers to dress for the cold to avoid frostbite.

Police Commissioner James O'Neill said thousands of officers would be stationed along the parade route. They included counterterrorism teams with long guns, plainclothes officers mixed in with the crowd and a new squad of K-9 teams that can sniff out explosives from a few hundred feet away.
