Get a First Look at the Baby Yoda Balloon Appearing in the Macy’s Parade This Year
We’ve got something out of this world to share with you! The New York Post recently captured images of the brand new Grogu (Baby Yoda) balloon that is being unveiled for this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
These awesome images were taken at Macy’s Balloonfest held this morning at Citi Field in New York City.
You’ll know Grogu from Star Wars spinoff The Mandalorian. You can see The Child above being wheeled into place! Balloonfest is essentially a test flight for all of the balloons that will appear in the parade each year! All of the floats take a trial run in a circle around the grounds. This is also a great opportunity for those that are serving as balloon handlers for the first time to learn the ropes (literally.)
The balloons featured in this parade range in size from 39- 51 feet tall.
The Baby Yoda balloon measures 41 feet tall by 29 foot long and is actually modeled after the Funko POP figure of the character. The NY Post also tells us that Baby Yoda’s ear span comes in at 37 feet.
According to the official description given for the float, balloon Baby Yoda is reaching out for the knob of the Mandalorian’s ship from the series. He is one of six new balloons that will fly on Thanksgiving Day 2021. On November 25h, the parade will take its usual route down Central Park West to 6th Avenue. Last year’s parade was shortened with no live crowds due to COVID.
We hope that you’ll be tuning in to Macy’s on November 25th to see this beauty take to the skies! Disney Cruise Line will also be debuting a float as well to celebrate Disney’s newest cruise ship the Disney Wish which will start sailing in 2022.
