The second thing I wanted to visit was the bull! Since Hitch is my favorite movie, I had seen the bull in it every time I watched it. As I stood by it I fantasized what it would be like if I was a stock broker. Scary stuff, man.
We got there so so early. The parade didn't start til 9 and we were there by 7:30. We played for Good Morning America and the drumline was the first thing on the Macy's parade snapchat story! We basically hung around the start of the route for an hour and a half. But while we were doing that, NICK JONAS DROVE BY. I repeat: Nick Jonas drove by on the back of a golf cart!! He smiled and waved and I was five feet from him. Oh my heck.
The announcer said "American Fork, please join the parade" and we were off! This by far was the most fun parade I have ever marched. There were so many people on the sides of the streets and above looking down from the skyscrapers. The floats were just magnificent. I kept having weird, whoa I'm in New York in the Macy's parade being watched by millions of people, moments. We kept a steady pace for the two miles before we got to the star. We entered the quiet zone and waited until it was our turn!
The last day was filled with Black Friday shopping (at least it was for me) or just lounging around if you wanted to. I hit my favorite stores and got some smoking hot deals. Then we hopped on the plane and left for home.
This whole trip felt like a dream. I still can't believe I was in the Macy's Parade, or that I was in New York. Wow!
