Angelina Ballerina is a cartoon mouse from children's books written by Katharine Holabird. She loves to dance ballet and dreams of becoming a famous prima ballerina. Her series has had over twenty books since the first one was published in 1983.
History with the Macy's Parade
A float featuring Angelina first rolled out in the 2002 Macy's Parade on a special float promoting her new animated TV show which was airing on PBS. At the front of the float, a stage stood for the featured ballet group, while a giant wooden figure of Angelina stood on the back of the float. Just behind her, a stage stood with cardboard props, reminiscent of ballet recitals. Many ballerinas danced beside and on the float. The float has since been retired in 2004.
Listed below are the guest stars that have performed/appeared on the float throughout its time in the line of march.
