Pikachu Flies for Thanksgiving!

Pikachu Thanksgiving Parade
Get ready to see Pikachu up in the sky!

Thanksgiving is a special day for many reasons. Of course you get to spend time with your family sharing what you are thankful for. Though, it also means you get to witness Pikachu up in the skies for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Once again, Pikachu will be taking the skies with his small Snow-Pikachu in his hand for the Thanksgiving Parade. Pikachu will be in the parade with several other famous icons such as Snoopy, Goku, Clifford and many others.

This year’s parade will mark Pikachu’s 19th appearance. He first made his debut in the New York skies back in 2001 as a simple Pikachu balloon. From there he has had some high and lows where one year his ears were deflated during the parade. Either way, Pokemon fans of all ages cheer on their favorite Electric Mouse Pokemon in the parade while being led by his Pikachu cladded handlers!

Will this be Pikachu and Snow-Pikachu’s final ride in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? After all, next year will mark Pikachu’s 20th year in the parade. The Pokemon Company International may want to reveal a new Pikachu balloon for the 20th anniversary.

I must admit, I am a fan of this Pikachu balloon because it is perfect to ring in the holiday season. This Pikachu looks ready for the cold weather with his scarf and little snow friend. In the end, I love seeing this balloon in the skies of one of the most famous parades each year.

Make sure to catch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 28th. The parade will be aired on NBC at 9am in all timezones. Be sure to join Pikachu in ringing in the holiday season!
