Ann Gault's dream job

Verona resident Ann Gault realized a long-held dream as she participated in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Gault was a balloon handler on the Ronald McDonald balloon and one of more than 5,000 volunteers. This year’s parade included 50 balloons and hundreds of costumed clowns and other entertainers who walk the 2 and 1/2 mile route that starts on West 81st Street and ends at Macy’s in Herald Square at 34th Street. Speed Skater Ronald McDonald was one of the four new balloons in the 2009 parade. Other newbies wereSailor Mickey Mouse, the Pillsbury Doughboy and Spider-Man.

Gault will be writing about her experience for an upcoming issue of Ladies Home Journal. Keep a look out for it.
