NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) -- Six new balloons set to float down the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade route took a test run on Saturday.
Crowds gathered at CitiField to watch Paddington Bear, the red Power Ranger, and Thomas the Tank Engine, among others.
"Oh it's exciting. It's very exciting. My granddaughter Collette is here to see Thomas go up in the air," one spectator said.
The Thomas the Tank Balloon is the heaviest to ever participate in the parade, weighing in at over 1,000-lbs.
