In what’s become an annual tradition, the giant Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Red Ranger balloon will be making a return appearance at 2018’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
This will be the fifth consecutive year the Power Rangers balloon flies the sky in New York City. On some years, the balloon has been accompanied with an organized dance featuring various performers in Power Rangers suits.
The Red Ranger balloon is the longest of its kind in the parade, as it journeys through the streets alongside characters from Pokemon, Spongebob SquarePants, and Disney.
This will be the first year that the Red Ranger balloon makes an appearance since the franchise was acquired by Hasbro in mid-2018.
All confirmed in an official bio below, the Thanksgiving Day Parade will continue its tradition of airing at 9AM Thanksgiving morning on both CBS and NBC.
It’s Morphin Time! This year marks Power Rangers’ historic 25th anniversary! This iconic balloon will remind fans of all ages that “They’ve Got The Power” to unleash their inner superhero and inspire the powers of inclusivity and teamwork!
Balloon Dimensions: 77-feet-long, 26-feet-wide, 56-feet-tall
Fun Fact: The larger than life Red Mighty Morphin Power Ranger is the longest balloon in the Parade; one of his arms is the length of a standard school bus at 45-feet.
