Thanks for Floating My Boat

Anya Litva (Russia) – One & Only Reethi Rah

Happy Thanksgiving! Today Americans will be stuffing themselves till their stomachs swell like an oversized li-lo. One of the Thanksgiving Day traditions is watching the Macy’s parade which kicks off the Christmas commercial season. The literal “high”-light is the array of floating balloon creatures depicting everything from the latest Disney figures to corporate mascots to the perennial Peanuts characters.

Of late, the Maldives has showcased its own seemingly daily water parade of “floats”. The most common is the Pink Flamingo (stay tuned for special edition) followed by Swan, Rainbow Pegasus, Donut (with bite) and Gold Swan.  Of course, no Thanksgiving Day parade is complete without a Homecoming Queen.  In the Maldives, every float has its own!

Each Macy’s parade has about 30 blow-up floats, so here are 30 of the top floats, Maldives-style (special award to Alyssa Ramos #13 for the most creative vignette)…
