The 2013 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade strolled down the streets of NYC last Thursday. And in one word, it was AWESOME! And we've got some super special guests to thank for that. Sam and Cat's Ariana Grande was one of them! We caught her with Dora the Explorer blowing kisses to the crowd. How sweet!
Ariana was pumped to perform her sweet tunes alongside her pals in the parade. She wore a smile from ear to ear all morning long!
Doesn't she look right at home on that float? Ariana and Dora cuddled close for a big hug as they traveled through town.
Dora didn't forget her season's greetings and made sure to give all her fans in the audience a big wave.
It wasn't long before the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dropped in to say, 'hello' and give the crowd a real New York welcome. Ninjas aren't much for big entrances, but parades are an exception.
Mikey is always cheery, but he was especially happy to get a birds-eye view of the city. It helped him give awesome shout outs and locate some pizza places for later.
And of course the day wouldn't have been complete without this little guy (okay, not so little). We know he's a balloon and all, but SpongeBob really looked like he was floating on air as he filled the sky with holiday cheer.
Don't be sad if you missed out on these fantastic floats. The parade may be over, but the holiday season is just beginning!
