Spider-Man is BACK in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

August 20, 2009 § Leave a comment

Finally, Macy’s has heard the cry of the people as they say, WE WANT SPIDEY!

That’s right Spider-Man is finally coming back after a ten year hiatus from the famous parade and in a BIG way:

A little more info from Marvel.com:

Millions of New Yorkers will feel their Spider-senses tingling this November when New York’s own neighborhood Super Hero, Marvel’s Spider-Man, makes a triumphant return to the skies over Manhattan to ensnare a new generation of fans in the 83rd Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®. After a decade, Thursday, November 26, 2009, marks the date when more than 3.5 millions spectators and over 50 million viewers nationwide will catch Spidey-fever as the ever popular Super Hero returns to the Macy’s Parade line-up.

Marvel’s legendary crime-fighting web-slinger made his Macy’s Parade debut in 1987, becoming an instant classic. Hailed by spectators, amateur photographers and millions of the Super Hero’s fans, the Spider-Man balloon became an icon of the Parade’s signature giant character balloon line-up. Flown in the holiday spectacle for twelve years, the balloon was retired following the 1998 procession. The new Spider-Man balloon debuting in this year’s Macy’s Parade combines the classic pose of the previous giant—his arms outstretched in front of him and his legs bent behind in full crawling mode—but this time it will feature Spidey’s classic web-slinging pose coupled with a more modern look. The Spider-Man balloon will be a part of the Macy’s Parade through 2011.
