Thanksgiving parade held in Stamford

The Thanksgiving holiday celebration got off to an early start in Stamford with the city's holiday parade.
Some were concerned that the parade's balloons would be grounded due to high winds Sunday.
As balloons were buffeted by powerful gusts of wind, handlers wondered if they could control the star attractions.
Majorettes also rethought routines so their batons wouldn't fly away.
Favorites like Mr. Potato Head and Bob the Builder made it out for the crowds.  Acrobats flipped and bands played.
Ultimately, organizers only delayed the start of the parade by half an hour.
