There's no final word yet on if the balloons will fly in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, but they will be ready if the call is yes.

The giant balloons were blown up Wednesday, near the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and hopes are high.

The patrol chief at New York Police Department, who will make the call, said it looks very good.

It's a no-go if winds are stronger than 23 miles per hour, with gusts of 34 miles per hour. 

As of Wednesday night, the forecast called for winds in the 14 to 24 mile an hour range, with possible gusts of 40 miles per hour.
