Harajuku Lovers float at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Thursday is Thanksgiving Day for the US and I have been informed that Macy's will host a Harajuku Lovers float; you know: those cute girls that have been the inspiration behind the Harajuku Lovers fragrances by Gwen Stefani. So without further ado, here are the details for those of you who might be interested in attending.

WHAT: Harajuku Lovers float appearing in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

WHEN: Thursday, November 27, from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

WHERE: Columbus Circle: the west side of the street; Broadway: between 38th and 58th streets; 34th Street: the south side of the street between Broadway and 7th Avenue

WHY: Neon Lights, over the top signs and Harajuku girls are on full blast on the new Harajuku Lovers float. Inspired by the Harajuku area of downtown Tokyo, the float consists of multi-level, clear, plexi-glass platforms that show the lights of Tokyo to full effect. Featured on board will be balloonhead alter egos of Love, Lil Angel, Music, Baby and G - the Harajuku Girls! Also taking the trip through Manhattan will be the real Love, Angel, Music and Baby who will dance close to their balloon counterparts on Thanksgiving.

More info can be found directly at Macy's website and pics have been uploaded on Flickr.

Another post coming up shortly!

Info via press release.


  1. It is so weird to think that Gwen Stefani of No Doubt has inspired a float for Macy's Day Parade, weird moments in musical/perfume history.

  2. To be perfectly honest, J, I am completely out of water with this whole thing :O (I have no idea what those HL are exactly!)
    I just thought it might be interesting to people who would be close by and might want to see something "festive" (who knows, they might be handling out samples!)

  3. I was wondering if there was a danger that a misguided perfumista would try to pop the balloon to see if the gas inside smelled of the perfume...

    My favorite holiday and watching the Parade is one of my favorite traditions! I'm not going to admit publicly how many years I've watched either!

    I got a very close friend who had moved to Va. from England watching it and now she calls me every Thanksgiving a.m. and we "watch" it together!

    Happy holiday everyone!

  5. S,

    you're being naughty! What an idea!

  6. R,

    that's an endearing confession and ritual! She must be special and this is charming. Happy holiday!
