Trial balloon

A new Pillsbury Doughboy balloon will make its first official flight this Thursday in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Earlier this month, the Doughboy was one of six new balloons made for the parade to fly at “Balloonfest” on a sunny Saturday high above a parking lot at Citi Field.

Let's go back there.

We'll compress the six hours or so that it took the Macy’s team to unload the balloon, spread it out, inflate it and launch it.
