On Thursday, November 28th America will once again celebrate Thanksgiving. This traditional holiday is full of festive feasts, football and gathering with family and friends. It’s also the grandest stage for inflatables as thousands line the streets of New York City for the famed Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Begun in 1924, the parade has become a time-honored tradition that is currently seen by 3.5 million people in New York and over 50 million watching at home. Including amazing performances, unique floats and giant balloons, the parade is a must-see event and has captivated the imagination of children and adults for over 87 years.

The 2013 parade will be another star-studded event and will include giant inflatable balloons by some of the most recognized brands in the world including:

–          Hello Kitty

–          Spiderman

–          Ronald McDonald

–          The Pillsbury Doughboy

–          Buzz Lightyear

–          Pikachu

–          Papa Smurf

–          Snoopy & Woodstock

The balloons that hover over the route that winds from Central Park West, down 6th Avenue and ends on 34th Street at Macy’ Herald Square have thrilled millions of spectators over the years and are a testament to the power of giant inflatable products.

The parade can be seen live in person in New York City or on NBC from 9am until noon on Thanksgiving Day.
