The 2019 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is sure to be a big hit. The featured performer is none other than Celine Dion, with other appearances scheduled for Jimmy Fallon and the Roots, Idina Menzel, Lea Michele, Natasha Bedingfield, Black Eyed Peas, Ciara, and many more.

But there are also going to be over 60 floats and balloons for viewers and spectators to feast their eyes on. New balloons in 2019 include Astronaut Snoopy (eighth version), Smokey Bear (second version), SpongeBob SquarePants (third version) with Gary the Snail, and Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham, plus a new giant novelty balloon of an enormous ice cream cone.

The parade is also inflating a “Blue Sky Gallery” balloon. This balloon class was introduced in 2005 and ran until 2012, then was revived in 2018. It transforms a work of contemporary art into a giant balloon. For 2019, the Blue Sky Gallery balloon is Love Flies Up to the Sky by world-renowned Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.
