    Thanks
    for the Memories, Goodyear

    Goodyear’s balloon-making partnership with the parade ends in the early ’80s—after nearly six decades! Balloon design moves in-house to Macy’s parade studio and a fulltime staff takes the reigns. Macy’s 1980 Superman balloon is one of the last produced by Goodyear. At approx. 100-feet-long, it’s the parade’s biggest balloon yet.
