9 of The Weirdest Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloons
It's been a Turkey Day tradition since the 1920s: The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. And I've seen all of them. I'm 100 years old. Just kidding. I'm not 100. I've only seen 20-something MTDPs. Some people like the floats, others like the musical numbers, but the majority? The majority watch for the balloons. What is it about those flying, inflated sculptures that is so fun? EVERYTHING.
Some of the balloons are staples (Snoopy! Hello Kitty! Spongebob SquarePants! Santa Claus!), and some of the balloons are so bizarre that you can't believe people actually built them and flew them through Manhattan. You know I live for the weird balloons. And the following balloons are some of my favorite weird balloons.
