Giant balloons fly through Stamford for annual parade

Bagpipes and big balloons made their way through downtown Stamford as the 14th annual UBS Parade Spectacular took to the streets.

The parade is one of the largest helium balloon parades in the country.

This year, the air was filled with music of the 50s and the scene was complete with girls in poodle skirts and boys in letterman jackets. It all commemorated the 50th birthdays of many of the Catholic schools in Stamford.

This year's grand marshal was Mets great Lee Mazzilli.
