If you’re anything like us, one of the highlights of Thanksgiving (in addition to food and football) is the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “Today” is here Monday (Nov. 25) with a sneak peek.

Anchor Tamron Hall “volunteers” to strap on a “balloon head” in the “Today Show” plaza, turning her into a giant, inflatable pilgrim. She looks … nervous, hahaha. And then she tries to walk, which is a bit of a challenge.

Meanwhile, anchor Natalie Morales gets the easy job — she’s atop a giant rocking horse that is the oldest element in the entire parade. It’s been around for 60 years, wow.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade kicks off at 9 a.m. ET on CBS and 10 a.m. ET on NBC Thursday, Nov. 25.
