Trixie's Dreidel is a balloonicle that appeared in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

History with the Macy's Parade

Trixie's Dreidel made its debut in the 2013 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, as the celebration of Hanukkah which was the day before Thanksgiving. The ballooncile depicted a larger-than-life dreidel spinning its way down the parade route upon a stack of gelt -- money given to children during Hanukkah.

During its debut, the balloonicle broke down multiple times and was eventually passed by the final unit in the Parade's line of march -- The Red "Believe" Stars. The balloonicle was eventually fixed, and caught up to its planned position along 6th Avenue, in front of the Smurf's Mushroom House float just in time for its NBC annual telecast.
