Rushmore Hosts Inaugural Thanksgiving Parade

Rushmore Avenue Elementary School held its very first Thanksgiving Day Parade as a way to continue to bring the school’s “United We Stand” motto to life.

The fifth graders walked the halls showcasing their very own handmade balloons, while the third and fourth graders watched in awe and excitement. This event was inspired by the book “Balloons Over Broadway,” which was read by all the fifth grade classes. The fifth grade students researched and created their very own balloons and commentary after learning about Tony Sarg, the mastermind behind the helium balloons.

The balloons have become Macy’s trademark on Thanksgiving Day and have given America a long-lasting gift. Thanks to Tony, Rushmore has found a new tradition to add to its yearly festivities.
