Final preparations are underway in New York ahead of the 90th Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. And there is something for just about everyone. Giants balloons are inflated in a quiet street in New York's Upper West Side. For eight year old Dakota Nagel -- anticipation is in the air. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DAKOTA NAGEL, 8-YEAR-OLD ONLOOKER, SAYING: "Today is the blowing up of the balloons. And it is really exciting because every year there is something different and I live right down there. So I see it every year and it's really fun." Earlier this year Islamic State called on its followers to attack the event -- which is a concern for some. (SOUNDBITE) (English) XEXXON PANJAMAPIROM, ONLOOKER SAYING: "I am concerned about that. That is why we are here today instead of tomorrow. But then New York City Police they do a good job so nothing to be concerned about." The Thanksgiving Day parade is one of the most watched non-sporting events in the U.S. -- with millions expected to tune in -- as they prepare to mark Thanksgiving with friends and family.
