Hello Kitty makes her debut in the 86th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade

Hello Kitty gets her place in history by joining the annual spectacle of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as one of three new character balloons – Papa Smurf and Elf on The Shelf being the other two.

Crews readied the balloons and told The Global Dispatch that the main challenge was Papa Smurf, “trying to get the legs appear that he is dancing.”

This is the second version of balloons for Hello Kitty which was first added in 2007.

The 86th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has been reported as a boost for moral in New York as the city is still struggling after Hurricane Sandy.
