Like magic, giant astronauts, clowns, and alligators float into the sky, tethered by hundreds of people. Clowns, cowboys, and knights handle roaring bears, elephants, monkeys, and camels, all walking down Harlem. Marching bands step in time, filling the street with festive music and cheer. The audience cheers in awe, not sure what to look at first. History has been made.
