Smurf balloon debuts in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade


Smurf balloon debuts in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

In honor of the 50th Anniversary for The Smurfs, a 47-foot tall Smurf balloon joined Buzz Lightyear and Horton as the newcomers in the 82nd annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The blue Smurf also had the company of Smurfette and Papa Smurf on a decked out Smurfs float.

Below is a video showing the Macy's team testing the new Smurf balloon much earlier:

I was expecting a giant Karen Horton balloon float

Um, I believe that's lazy. That is if I know my smurfs as well as I think I do.
