Chuck Kostichka will be an anchor at this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. No, he won’t be in the broadcast booth. Rather, he’ll be hanging onto a rope under the Healthy Mr. Potato Head balloon.
I will be helping to hold him in place and hopefully avoid another M & M incident like last year, says Kostichka, superintendent of the College’s Hancock Agricultural Research Station. Spuds rule!
The parade starts at 8 a.m. central time. It will be broadcast on NBC.
The United States Potato Board is sponsoring the Healthy Mr. Potato Head balloon in the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade as part of a wider campaign geared toward increasing awareness of the powerful nutrition contained in potatoes.
