Macy’s is welcoming new giant character balloons for this year’s Thanksgiving Day parade.
According to Today, joining the line-up this year are Ada Twist, Scientist by Netflix, Baby Yoda (Groku), Ronald McDonald, and Pikachu and Eevee. The balloons will undergo their test flight at Citi Field on Saturday morning. Macy’s skilled flight management team, along with a few hundred handlers, will take the balloons out for an outdoor trial run to get firsthand experience before the parade.
The 95th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will feature 15 giant character balloons, 28 floats, 36 novelty and heritage inflatables, more than 800 clowns, 10 marching bands, and nine performance groups, and, of course, Santa Claus.
It steps off on November 25 at 9 am Eastern on NBC, Peacock, and Telemundo.
