History with the Macy's Parade
Go Bowling made its Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade debut in the 2018 Parade with a series of several balloonicles and specialty vehicles depicting a game of bowling in the streets of New York. The company's debut marked the largest presentation of balloon elements showcasing one partner in the Parade’s history.
The holiday bowling scene features a 14-foot tall bowling ball rolling down the Parade route, joined by six 16-foot tall bowling pins, turning the streets of New York City into the world's largest bowling lane. Two 14-foot long red and blue striped bowling shoe vehicles also join the procession, trying to score a "turkey" on Turkey Day. The Go Bowling balloonicles were notable for being the first balloonicles (alongside the Baby DINOs) that used motorized wheelchairs to maneuver.
During the unit's appearance in the 2019 Parade, one of the bowling pins began to malfunction shortly after leaving the staging area, and was removed from the line of march. Additionally, one of the five remaining pins wasn't inflated all the way, and required the assistance of two handlers to keep it upright.
Go Bowling returned to the reimagined 2020 Macy's Parade, complete with its oversized bowling ball, bowling pins and shoes. The balloonicles were one of only few balloon elements that made a live appearance, as many balloons had been demoted to a pre-taped appearances in response to rising COVID-19 cases.
