In our weekly Q&A installment, we asked The Greatist Team and readers which Thanksgiving Day Parade floats they would ride. Here’s what they had to say.

A balloon, for sure! And no, not dragging a balloon, I would want to be on the balloon. Do they still have the Clifford the Big Red Dog one? He was always my favorite growing up, so I'd want to be on that one. Best view for the parade ever! — Kelly Fitzpatrick

I would like to be on whichever float the Broadway-bound cast of Newsies will be on! And obviously join them in performing "King of New York" since I already know all the words and choreography. — Emily Faherty

Is there any performance more amazing than the Rockettes?! I think not. I'm fairly certain I would practice my high-kicks in front of the TV every Thanksgiving. — Marcy Franklin

I love the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. I have watched it every year since I can remember, and now I make my kids watch it. With so many amazing floats, it is a hard choice, but I would choose the Oneida Indian Nation float. Their dancing and music is beautiful, and without the Indian Nation, there would not be a Thanksgiving. The turtle is super cute, too. — Kristine Lockwood

I feel like I've been waiting all my life for this question -- THE SCHNUCKS SHOPPING CART! Ever since I was a little kid I have been obsessed with this contraption. Schnucks is the unfortunate name of my local grocery store chain back home, and every year they would run this in our local parades. Apparently it is the world's largest shopping cart. — David Butler

I will ride any float Justin Bieber's not on... — Shannon OCR

A few years ago, a Barbie float debuted in the Thanksgiving Day Parade. Needless to say, I wasn't on it. But the eight-year-old girl inside me won't be satisfied until she gets to blow kisses from a pink and white frosted castle on wheels. There's always this year. — Shana Lebowitz

I want to be on whichever float the latest teen pop celebrity is on. Miley Cyrus? Justin Bieber? Yes, please. They're totally obnoxious, but I want my 15 minutes of fame as much as the next person, and that's the quickest way to get it. — Kelli Kerkman

I would make my own float: A huge avocado. The whole Greatist team would be on board and we'd throw quinoa out in the crowd while blasting Beyonce. Just wait for it. — Laura Schwecherl
