Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Superman Balloon

1940’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Superman Balloon

Superman has always been larger then life, especially when he was a balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Here is a classic photo of the Kryptonian as he is marched down the avenue during a parade in the 1940s. Over the years, the Superman Balloon has resurfaced at the parade. But for my money, nothing beat the simplicity of this old school Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Superman Balloon.

One thought on “1940’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Superman Balloon

  1. He looks like he just stuffed himself at some enormous (inflatable) Thanksgiving table with all the other balloons, and has a case of indigestion. Where are those Tums when you need them? No pockets in the leotard, I guess.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
