In addition to all of the delicious food and the time that we get to cherish with family and friends, one of the many things that we really look forward to on Thanksgiving is the iconic and renowned Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! We are always filled with so much joy to see all of the wonderful floats, the out-of-this-world and enormous balloons and all of the terrific performances. Well, fans get to look forward to seeing Raphael, Donatello, Michaelangelo and Leonardo roam the streets of New York City and join everyone during their Thanksgiving festivities at this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the reimagined 2D-animated series, will have its very own float at the magnificent parade. The float is bound to be a fan-favorite with its multi-tiered design of the turtles’ underground lair including lighting and special fog effects.
“Adding incredible excitement to the Macy’s Parade since 2012, we are thrilled to once again partner with Nickelodeon for an all-new, totally reimagined Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Float,” said Jordan Dabby, vice-president partnership marketing for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “Helping to keep the Parade and New York safe from the evil Foot Clan, the Turtles are sure to captivate millions of spectators live on the street and on television as they ride through Manhattan on board this exciting stage.” (source: press release)
“Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the highly-anticipated next chapter in the iconic Turtles anthology, has resonated with fans both old and new,” said Charlotte Castillo, Senior Vice President, Global Franchise Planning, Nickelodeon Group. “As families gather for the annual tradition of watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, this spectacular float will take viewers on an epic joy ride and immerse them in the action-packed adventure of the brand-new series.” (source: press release)
Nickelodeon fans also get to see the legendary SpongeBob SquarePants balloon making his way from Bikini Bottom to the streets of the Big Apple. A PAW Patrol Chase balloon will also be seen at the parade. Shimmer and Shine will dazzle the parade with a fabulous float at the event.
