A Spectacle Like No Other!

5, 4, 3, 2, 1 - Let's Have A Parade!

It is these words that have started the beloved Thanksgiving classic for over nine decades, and it is these words that will continue to kick off the holiday season every year on the fourth Thursday of November. This year, the Parade celebrated it's 93rd anniversary, with its usual array of fantastic floats, giant balloons, celebrity appearances and the best bands and dancers in the land.

Despite high winds, the helium-filled giants who have been the staple of the Parade since 1928 once again soared down the Parade route, and wrangled three brand-new giant balloons into its family. For the first time ever, Dr. Seuss' beloved Green Eggs and Ham took to the skies as Sam-I-Am and Guy-Am-I with a custom-made ham-mobile, which is large enough to fit 4 million eggs or 14,000 hams that weigh 15.5 pounds each.

If ham on turkey day isn't your fit, perhaps you could go on a grand adventure with Charles Schulz's beloved beagle, Snoopy, as he cleared for launch in his 8th consecutive balloon appearance, now sporting his space outfit from the Snoopy in Space animated series. He returned to the Parade for the first time since 2015 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing.

From high up in space to deep below the ocean, SpongeBob SquarePants debuted in the form of a new balloon, now joined by his loyal pet snail, Gary. This version marks the 3rd balloon to be made in the porous character's likeness, with over 600 internal tie-in lines used to give him his defined square shape.

Although unable to start it's flight due to an incident, Yayoi Kusama brought a piece of her creative genius to the Parade with the newest entry, Love Flies Up To The Sky, making her the only female to join the ranks of the Blue Sky Gallery, in addition to being the oldest Blue Sky Gallery entree.

Taking a break from his busy schedule of saving fires, Smokey Bear returned for the first time since 1993 to celebrate his 75th anniversary. He floated down the Parade route with his signature ranger hat, fashionable denim jeans and shovel as he reminds Parade watchers young and old that "Only YOU can prevent forest fires".

With the return of many old favorites, the 93rd Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade continued to captivate and innovate the annual American tradition! Although the Parade just recently ended, the magic-making artists of Macy's Parade Studio are already beginning preparations for the 94th Parade in 2020 -- adding just a few more layers in preparation for the 100th Annual Parade in 2026, in which John Piper says it will be "the grandest Parade the world has ever seen.
