STAMFORD - Tens of thousands of spectators lined the streets of Stamford Sunday afternoon for the UBS Parade Spectacular.

Residents say the parade, which displays impressive balloons, is even better than the Thanksgiving Day parade held in New York City.

More than 1,000 people volunteered as balloon handlers in the parade. Husband and wife broadcasters Maury Povich and Connie Chung served as the parade's grand marshals.
