With just under two weeks to go until the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade takes to the streets, preparations are in full swing. Earlier this week Macy’s revealed a series of new balloons that will be joining the cast of old favorites at this year’s event, as AM New York reports. Among them will be a giant rendition of Goku from Dragonball Z (towering over spectators at 70 feet long, 56 feet tall and 36 feet wide) and the first Netflix characters: Fleck, Bjorn, Jojo and Hugg, elves from the forthcoming movie “The Christmas Chronicles” which debuts on the streaming service on Thanksgiving Day.
If you’re already making Oktoberfest plans to hit up the Standard, High Line‘s beer garden, you might want to think about imbibing a bit earlier, as the new Light Cave art installation is only on view until the end of September.
Presented by FriendsWithYou and commissioned by the Standard Hotel and the Art Production Fund, this public art project “is a symbol of light and connectivity in an architectural form.” The inflatable work, which evokes a prehistoric figure and a cavern, spans the entire outdoor plaza in front of the hotel and pulsates with energy and light, creating a sensory rich experience.
