An old favorite balloon returns to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

An old favorite balloon returns to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade”

The vice president of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade states, "Our incredible team has planned a fantastic spectacle featuring an wonderful line-up of giant character balloons, floats of fantasy, the nation's best marching bands and performance groups, a dazzling array of musical artists, all coming together to herald the arrival of the one-and-only Santa Claus".

The team will make any necessary last-minute changes between now and the big parade, which is sure to be a crowd-pleaser with some brand new faces like Olaf from the movie Frozen, The Grinch, Chase from the animated series Paw Patrol and Jet from the TV show Super Wings.

Camp Broadway LLC, the award-winning theatre arts enrichment company, will perform Irving Berlin's "This Is A Great Country" in the 91st Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade® featuring an ensemble cast of children, ranging in age from 9-16, who represent immediate family members of active duty military personnel, veterans, reservists, wounded warriors and fallen heroes from all the branches of United States Armed Forces. One of the old balloons making a reappearance is a baseball player that appeared in the original version of the movie "Miracle On 34th Street". However, as the character appeared in a black and white movie, organizers have made a decision to keep his color in the same manner in order to preserve his appearance for how he is remembered. In addition, the famed spokesduck, The Aflac Duck, will hit the test course before officially debuting as an all-new balloonicle (a Macy's Parade innovation of hybrid cold-air balloon and vehicle) in this year's Parade.

"Even though you're going to televise in color, we painted him black and white so he looks just like the balloon did way back when", Macy's Studio Vice President John Piper said in an interview with CBS.
