The Simpsons: Tapped Out gets parade floats to celebrate Thanksgiving

After celebrating Halloween last month with a Halloween-themed Treehouse of Horror update, The Simpsons: Tapped Out for iOS is now getting a Thanksgiving theme.

Players can use the in-game currency of donuts or cash to purchase parade balloons. So far five balloons have been confirmed: Snowball 2, Santa's Little Helper, Itchy, Blinky and Scratchy. According to users on the game's official forums the balloons are only cosmetic.

With the latest updates also comes new decorations like a "Hail Ants" sign, a volleyball court and graffitied walls.

The update goes live on Nov. 8.
