The U.S. is celebrating Thanksgiving and it wouldn’t be turkey day without the Macy’s thanksgiving parade

More than 50 Million viewers across broadcast and streaming, one of the nation’s most viewed televised events annually

New York is planning tight security around the 96th annual Parade in the wake of mass shootings

U.S. Police told media that there’s no known, credible threat to the event itself.

Dubbed the most famous parade, heavy weapons teams, explosives detection dogs and even a bomb squad is part of the huge security operation.

16 Giant character helium balloons will fly above New York City, including Bluey from a smash hit kids show down under

Macy’s CEO Jeff Gennette promised the parade will be “bigger and better this year than ever before” — balloons, floats, marching bands, Broadway casts, Radio City Rockettes and, of course, Santa Claus will dazzle parade go-ers.

Prince Harry involved in ‘near catastrophic’ car chase

Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death

Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and her mother were involved in a “near catastrophic car chase” involving paparazzi photographers in New York.

The incident took place after they left the Ms. Foundation for Women, where Meghan was honoured for her work.

“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers,” said Prince Harry’s spokesperson.

The chase involved paparazzi driving on the sidewalk, running red lights and driving while taking pictures.

“I thought that was a bit reckless and irresponsible,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said.

Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death.

Princess Diana was killed when her limousine crashed as it sped away from chasing paparazzi in Paris in 1997.

Harry and Meghan stepped down from their royal duties in 2020, partly over what they described as intense media harassment.

Harry is currently involved in numerous court cases in London where he has accused papers of using unlawful methods to target him and his family.

Hanks told the host: “I could be hit by a bus tomorrow and that’s it, but performances can go on and on and on and on.”

The award-winning actor acknowledged that tech developments could lead to an AI-generated version of himself appearing in films he may not not normally choose.
