Snoopy returns to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2013

After a no-show in 2012, the classic Snoopy balloon will once again be featured in the iconic holiday spectacle.

Summer has only just begun, but we’re already getting excited about the holiday season, which will be kicked off in typical fashion by the 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Exciting news for this year—Snoopy, the beloved Peanuts beagle, will return to the lineup of floats after being conspicuously absent from last year’s parade. Millions of viewers will watch the helium-filled pup and his pal Woodstock glide through Manhattan for a record-breaking 37th time, and they’ll be looking better than ever. Snoopy also holds the record for most balloon versions (past iterations include Astronaut Snoopy and Ice Skater Snoopy); this will be will be the seventh brand-new Snoopy since he first took flight in the 1960s.
