Turkey is a giant balloon that appeared in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 1935 and 1936.

History with the Macy's Parade

Turkey made his debut in the 1935 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, but the balloon was retired after the 1936 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Like many other balloons from this time period, he was recycled into part of the 650 pounds of rubber donated to the U.S. military for war purposes at WWII.
