Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade - Philadelphia, PA
When I turned 50 I made a list of all the things I wanted to try or see. I never completed that list during my 50th year but I'm still working on it 6 years later.
On that list was to be a balloon handler for the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade. We stayed the night in Philadelphia since we needed to be up in the middle of the night to get our costumes and be at the meeting site. We received the Strawberry Shortcake Balloon.
We had a beautiful day and what an amazing experience. We actually made it home in time to eat Thanksgiving dinner with our families.
