Balloons steal show at NYC parade after wind fears

Scores braved the rains to see the inflation of the balloons for the Macy's Parade 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)
