Step aside, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade: Here in Stamford, we’ve got our very own whopping iconic holiday pageantry to offer.
Our corner of the Tri-State Area, after all, hosts one of the nation’s very biggest helium balloon parades: the Stamford Downtown Parade Spectacular. And the 2017 run-through is fast approaching, so now’s definitely the time to iron down your boutique lodgings right here at Hotel Zero Degrees Stamford!
This year’s balloon bonanza takes place on Sunday, November 19—rain or shine, mind you—and with a plush room at our chic hotel you’re nice and close to the parade route. Step-off happens at noon on Summer Street, with the eye-popping procession proceeding down Broad Street and then Atlantic—just a few blocks from Hotel Zero Degrees over here on Washington Blvd.
The Stamford Downtown Parade Spectacular: Helium Giants, Marching Bands, Decorated Floats
The Stamford Downtown Parade Spectacular has it all: a mighty fleet of titanic helium balloons depicting iconic characters, their majestic, slow-mo advance accompanied by snazzy, award-winning regional marching bands in lockstep, a whole variety of decked-out floats, and troupes of clowns and other merry revelers. Who knows what familiar faces you’ll see among the towering balloon ranks? Previous years have featured such supersized staples as Garfield, Scooby Doo, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Fred Flintstone, the Very Hungry Caterpillar, and Hagar the Horrible.
Needless to say, watching a line of epic balloon figures (some on the order of 60 feet high) thread a pomp-powered path through the streets of Stamford is infectiously fun, and a wonderful way to mark the Thanksgiving season.
