Ever since I was a kid, one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving was the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It was a great way to start the morning while were preparing the feast for later in the day. This year, it gets even more special with its own foursquare badge.
Users who check in to the parade festivities will unlock the Macy’s Parade 2010 badge. The design features the Macy’s logo on one of the parade’s signature big balloons. The unlock text reads:
You’ve checked into the Macyâ€™s Thanksgiving Day ParadeÂ®! Enjoy this weekâ€™s excitement featuring great bands, musical acts, mischievous clowns & awe-inspiring floats! 5-4-3-2-1â€¦Letâ€™s Have a Parade!
I’m envious of everyone who’ll be in New York on Thursday to unlock this badge!
UPDATE (10:23 pm): According to Macy’s here are the dates and times you’ll be able to earn the badge:
- Celebrity Rehearsals: 3pm-11pm on Monday 11/22 or Tuesday 11/23 â€” Herald Square
