The WIMPY KID Macy's Thanksgiving Day Balloon Revealed







Recently I headed out west on a secret mission. What was that mission . . . ?

You guessed it. We went to check out The WIMPY KID Macy's Thanksgiving Day Balloon. Below are photos of our sneak peek.








This mold reveals all the different sections that need to be sewn together for the balloon to take flight. See all the lines!

Above is the balloon model and the actual balloon in flight.

Today the ABRAMS team traveled out to East Rutherford, New Jersey for the first outdoor test of the Wimpy Kid balloon as well as training to become balloon handlers. The ABRAMS team including myself will be balloon handlers during the parade. Thanksgiving day promised to be a long memorable day.
