It's that time again—time for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. And one of the fun traditions to watching the balloons being blown up the night before. This year's Thanksgiving parade balloon inflation begins tomorrow at 3 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m., with the entrance at West 77th Street and Columbus Avenue. It does get very crowded, so be patient!

The parade's 43 balloons of various sizes will be blown up on the blocks outside the American Museum of Natural History—this year's new giant balloons are the Pillsbury Doughboy, Ronald McDonald, Sailor Mickey, and Spider-Man, joining favorites like Pikachu, Kermit and "Supercute" Hello Kitty. If you go to the inflation, share your pictures with us by emailing photos@gothamist.com or tagging them "gothamist" on Flickr.
