Toothless Dragon Helium Balloon to Appear in 87th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
Posted on October 20, 2013
Toothless, the dragon from DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon film, will appear as a helium balloon in the 87th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. A still of Toothless from the film is pictured above. An image of the Toothless balloon has not yet been revealed, but Macy's says the balloon will measure 70-feet in length and will tower more than five stories. It will also have glowing green eyes.
Amy Kule, executive producer of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, said in the announcement, "As this clever and playful dragon takes his rightful place in the sky this year, millions of spectators along the streets of Manhattan and in homes across the country will be dazzled by Toothless. His incredibly subtle coloring, bright eyes, enormous shape and scale promises to put Toothless in a class of his own among the Parade's helium giants this Thanksgiving."
