Superman Balloons

November 23, 2006: Superman on Thanksgiving Day

Americans celebrate Thanksgiving today, and Superman has been part of past Thanksgiving Day celebrations.

Did you know (according to The History Channel) the modern Superman balloon at over 100 feet tall is the largest balloon ever to appear in the history of the Thanksgiving Day Parade and likely always will be due to new restrictions over the past decade on the permissible size of the balloons?

The first Superman balloon appeared in the 1940 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The modern day balloon first appeared in 1980.
