Indiana Girl Scouts to debut float in Macy’s Parade

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana will join the 90th anniversary Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with their first float.

On the float, the girls will climb and belay on giant 3-D puzzle pieces of a globe, connecting the pieces by maneuvering mechanics. The Girl Scout themed float is about “building a better world,” according to a press release from Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana.

Chief Expert at Girl Scouts of the USA, Andrea Bastiani Archibald said that the intention of the float is to inspire girls around the world to realize their potential, encourage them to embrace challenges, and motivate them to make positive change.

In previous years, the Macy’s Parade has had a television audience of roughly over 50 million. Another 3.5 million people attend the event in person in Manhattan.

The parade airs nationwide 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Thursday, November 24 on NBC.
