(AP) - Fans of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City will see something different this year: giant dump trucks filled with sand.



More than 80 city sanitation trucks will be used at intersections and other strategic spots along the 2 ½ mile parade route to create an imposing physical barrier to any potential terror attack.
