The Basketball is a classic novelty balloon from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. It is one of the oldest and most popular balloons in the Parade.

History with the Macy's Parade

The balloon first appeared in 1991, alongside a Baseball and Football. This version of the balloon appeared until 2003, when it was retired.

A new version of the balloon returned in 2009 with a new design and a bolder "Teams Win! Macy's All-Stars" text. This balloon appeared until 2012 when it retired.
