Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Has Pikachu and Skylanders Balloons
The official website for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has revealed its lineup of floats and balloons that we can expect on its annual celebration throughout Manhattan. Two interesting additions to the balloon lineup that weren't in the 2013 parade would be the new, massive balloons for Pikachu and Eruptor.
Skylanders' Eruptor balloon is going to be 50-feet long, 36-feet wide and 36-feet tall. The artists who made the balloon used over 40 gallons of florescent paint and 5 barrels of glitter just to help bring Eruptor to life. This marks the third time Pikachu joined in on Macy's Thanksgiving Day festivities. In particular, Pikachu has been added to help announce the launch of Pokemon ORAS. The Pikachu balloon will be 36-feet long, 29-feet wide and 53-feet tall.
The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will debut on NBC at 9:00 AM EST during (you guessed it) Thanksgiving Day.
We're pretty sure that Pikachu balloon will look a lot more sinister in person.
