Sights of The Thanksgiving Day Parade 2012

This past Thanksgiving we had so much to be grateful for. It’s taken us a couple of weeks to get back to normal and it was nice to celebrate the beautiful day in the city we so love.

Thanks to our friend Barbara of BP Media Relations, the kids and my husband got to enjoy their very first ever live viewing of the Thanksgiving Day parade from the amazing views of her apartment.

And speaking of Barbara; she is an example of how lucky I am. We connected as blogger and agency, working together on campaigns for her clients, and have over the years become friends. It’s the beauty of what I do, meeting people through work and loving them as friends later on and having a chance to spend time with friends and family is what the holidays is all about!

Thanks Barbara for all the fun. The family is still talking about the morning!

As a side note, a lot of people asked how you can get tickets to have access to the parade front row and center. It has changed over the years. I advise getting there (there being your desired viewing spot along the parade route) really early in the morning, before the police set up barriers which make it impossible to cross or get a close view. The parade starts at 9 am, and cut off to sections usually start being enforced about an hour and a half before hand. So look to be there before that. Another option, pricier and often quickly sold out option is to book a hotel room. Check out for more information for next year!

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy all our images (also on our Flickr page):
