November 22, 1984 – The Donald Duck Balloon Appears in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Donald Balloon

“…old favorite Donald Duck, after years in the Macy’s warehouse, took another flight down the route in honor of this 50th birthday.”

On November 22, 1984, to continue the celebrations for Donald Duck’s 50th birthday, a special balloon of Donald flew in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Donald Duck balloon originally flew in 1935, with a new version created in 1962; he also appeared in the parade in 1972 alongside Mickey to mark the anniversary of the opening of Walt Disney World. This 1984 celebration was the first time the Donald balloon had been out of the warehouse in several years. Donald appeared in the parade right after the Tom Turkey float.
