Spidey Balloon a Huge Hit at the Parade

Enjoy our photos and thoughts from Spider-Man's return to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

The Amazing Spider-Man balloon returns!
Hey there fellow Marvel fans! We sure hope you got a chance to witness the Spider-Man balloon lead the 81st Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this past Thursday!

Millions of people braved the early morning chill and ferocious NYC crowds just to catch a glimpse at Spidey as he made his return to the parade after an 11 year hiatus!

Spidey seemed right at home floating high above the streets of New York. If you missed the parade (what are you crazy?!) we here at Marvel have some exclusive photos of Spidey in action just for you, courtesy of the Marvel staff and family members in attendance!

And if the photos below aren't enough, then here's a little perspective from Alex Starbuck (yes, that's his name!), Assistant Editor in Marvel's collections department:

"I'll say that the best thing about the parade—aside from those sweet Spidey vests—was seeing how happy everyone was to see Spider-Man back in the parade. There was just tons of chanting and picture-taking wherever we went. We even saw Al Roker come by and take a few pictures before he had to kick off the event."
