The Thanksgiving Day Parade with Pirate's Booty

There are few annual events more quintessentially "fall in NYC" than the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. My first year in the city (16 years ago, crazy as that seems), I worked the parade as a Page at CBS News. But like millions of others, I've watched it on TV ever since. This year, we graciously attended as guests of Pirate's Booty. Despite the early hour (we were in our seats along Central Park West by 7:30am), it was a such a fantastic experience to be at the parade again and see all the action live -- this time with a husband and children in tow.

Thanks to Pirate's Booty for our tickets -- this was such a natural fit as the girls LOVE this snack, and it's easy for me to give them guilt-free (their snack bag size is perfect for the subway ride home from school). This is the 3rd time Pirate's Booty has participated in this celebrated tradition (90 years old and going strong!), and its "Treasure Hunt" float, helmed by Crunchy the Parrot, was one of the hits of the parade.

Check out a few pictures (thanks, Husband!) for a peek of the morning's events. So much fun!
