There were many floats during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City that video game and anime fans would easily have been able to point out.

It’s a tradition that happens every Thanksgiving day – a massive parade goes down the streets of New York while those in attendance, and those at home marvel at the giant floats and balloons that go on by.

During the 2019 parade, there was a lot that gaming and anime fans would recognize so we’ve rounded up some of the best floats from this year’s event.

Pokemon CompanyPikachu made an appearance at the parade.

Anime and gaming only rise in popularity each year, so it’s becoming more accepting to be shown off in the mainstream like this, and fans couldn’t be more excited about it.

Let’s just dive right in and look at some of the best floats and balloons to make an appearance during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

With Pokemon Sword and Shield releasing earlier this month, it’s no surprise to see a Pikachu balloon floating out there, especially considering that Pikachu is one of the most popular Pokemon.

Red Power Ranger

The Red Power Ranger has always been one of the more popular ones of them all, so it’s not surprising to see him featured front and center here.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Ninja Turtles have long been a fixture in pop culture, and they’re currently starring in a new TV show on Nickelodeon called Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Perhaps the best-known anime character of all, Goku was seen floating down the street in his Super Saiyan Blue mode from Dragon Ball Super.

While the LEGO brand is mostly known for its physical collection of toys, it has carved out a name for itself in the video game landscape thanks to series like LEGO Star Wars, Avengers, Harry Potter, and many, many more.

That’s everything that was on display in the gaming and anime realm this year, so perhaps next year could bring an even bigger showing.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
