Balloons steal show at NYC parade after wind fears

Technicians wear rain suits while inflating the Macy's Parade Aflac balloon, on Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2013 in New York. The characters that glide between Manhattan's skyscrapers can't lift off if sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts top 34 mph. The New York Police Department, the National Weather Service and Macy's representatives will make a final determination in the morning.  (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)
