The R.H. Macy Mini Hot Air Balloon was a novelty balloon. It features a small but colorful hot air balloon with stars around it, design after R.H. Macy himself. The balloon usually came after a group of clowns and had a banner that read "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade: A Holiday Treat for Children Everywhere" on it. It debuted in 2002 and retired after 2003. It came back in 2008, but was retired afterwards, and hasn't been seen since then.
