In my Thanksgiving Eve entry here on Blogger, I mentioned warnings that unusually high winds could prevail on Thanksgiving, causing the grounding of balloons who were set to "march" (fly) in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.
And as I said in my subsequent entry which I published on the day after the official holiday (where I featured the Macy's balloon who is rendered in the likeness of Chase from Paw Print), "Indeed, there were VERY high winds, but the balloons were allowed to participate..."
I concluded my aforementioned entry by stating, "THE QUESTION OF THE DAY WAS: 'How low can you go?' Stay tuned for photo-ops (in subsequent entries) re the answer to this question!"
Now, two days after I published that entry, I'm still not sure how low a Macy's ballon can go, but I am able to give you a pictorial accounting of what happened in the case of several of them.
In the first picture atop this entry, Sinclair's Dinosaur, can be seen heading south down CPW during this year's parade.
In the second as well as the third photo approaching that same street lamp in 2017.
As for Jett, another 2019 parade participant, he nearly collided with that same street lamp in 2017, as evidenced in the photograph below...
... but in the Parade that took place the other day, he could hardly go above CPW!
The same is true for Pikachu: He nearly collided with that same street lamp in 2017, as shown in the picture below...
... but in the Parade that took place the other day, like Jett, Pikachu could hardly go above CPW!
Wiggle Worm also had a hard time getting off the "ground" this year...
... but who can blame her?
After all, worms are ground travelers!
However, in bygone years (including 2012) that fact hasn't stopped Wiggle from riding high when participating in the Parade.
Harold the Fireman also had a hard time getting off the "ground" this year, or was he merely keeping his nose to the grindstone (CPW's Parade route)?
Just like Jett as well as Pikachu, The Red Mighty Morphin Power Ranger nearly injured his shoulder by grazing that same streetlamp back in 2016, as seen in the next image.
The following photo shows he took no chances in letting his shoulder collide with the street lamp, instead he got friendly by greeting 2019's parade goers.
