Trivia

  • This is the third and final 2010's Parade where giant balloons almost got grounded due to strong winds, with the others being 2013 and 2018. However, much like those two years, the balloons were able to stay in the Parade, but had to be lowered to the ground.
  • Out of all of the 2010's Parades, the 2019 Parade had the most balloon removals, with Ronald McDonald, Love Flies Up to the Sky, one of the Blue & White Macy's Stars, and one of the Gold Macy's Starflakes, as well as one of the Go Bowling balloonicle pins.
  • This is also the first Parade since 2005 where a giant character balloon got removed from the Parade due to an incident. In this case, after Ronald McDonald's left leg got torn open due to the strong winds, the balloon eventually had to exit the route early and get removed at 42nd Street. Because of this, the NBC telecast had to use pre-recorded footage from 2018 to fill in his supposed live broadcast.
