First look: New balloons coming to Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The 92nd annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will kick off the holiday season on Thursday, Nov. 22.

The parade will begin at 9 a.m. It will feature 16 giant balloons; 43 novelty balloons; heritage balloons; balloonicles and trycallons (hybrid balloons and vehicles); and balloonheads (hybrid costume characters).

The new characters portrayed in balloons include the Saiyan warrior Goku from “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” and Fleck, Bjorn, Jojo and Hugg, the elf stars of Netflix’s “The Christmas Chronicles.”  

There will also be Go Bowling balloonicles, as the bowling ball, bowling pins and bowling shoe cars try for strikes along the Parade route.

Some favorites will return, including Charlie Brown, Diary of A Wimpy Kid, The Elf on the Shelf, The Grinch, and the Pillsbury Doughboy.

Four new floats will debut including Elf Pets by The Elf on the Shelf, Fantasy Chocolate Factory by Kinder, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by Nickelodeon, and Splashing Safari Adventure by Kalahari Resorts and Conventions.

The TODAY Show’s Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker will host the three-hour broadcast on NBC.
