Pat writes in with this great Thanksgiving video, how the parade videos are made! –
“…three and a half million people will gather in New York City for the “Macy’s Day Parade.” Some 50 million people will watch it on TV. Every one of them will be watching manufactured products float by, courtesy of Aerostar, a division of Raven Industries in South Dakota. Raven is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and it is one of those quiet and great US manufacturing companies. It is a half-century success story, a company that has constantly innovated and reinvented itself to stay competitive and stay vibrant. Along the way, they build some of the highest-tech and coolest stuff you’ve ever seen. You can check out their website to see it for yourself.” – Link (video).
