NEW YORK (AP) — New York City’s big Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will take place amid strong winds that could potentially ground the giant character balloons.

The balloons have caused mishaps and injuries in the past when gusts blew them off course.

The New York City Police Department says it’s monitoring wind gauges along the 2-½ mile  parade route.
