The Gold Macy's Tri-Star is a novelty balloon from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
History with the Macy's Parade
The Gold Macy's Tr-Star made its first Parade appearance in 2008, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Macy's department store. The design of the balloon borrows the shape of the cold-air tri-stars, with three basic Macy's star balloons stuck together. This balloon would only appear in the main Parade once and was retired after the 2008 Parade.
Despite its retirement from the main Parade, it would later reappear at the Universal Orlando Resort in 2011 for that year's run of the Macy's Holiday Parade. It would become a fixture in the Holiday Parade until 2016, when it, alongside everything else, was retired to make way for the revamped Universal's Holiday Parade Featuring Macy's the following year.
