NEW YORK (AP):

Yesterday was Thanksgiving in the United States, and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade took centre stage. It featured balloons, bands, stars, and heavy security in a year marked by attacks on outdoor gathering spots.

The 91st annual parade featured new balloons, including Olaf from the Disney movie, Frozen and Chase from the TV cartoon Paw Patrol, along with a new version of the Grinch of Dr Seuss fame.

Smokey Robinson, The Roots, Flo Rida and Wyclef Jean were among the stars celebrating.
