This weekend is the Stamford Downtown Parade Spectacular. We hope to see you there with your signs from the Star float!
Every parade has the giant helium balloons, but how do they deflate them after the parade?
For the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade it’s done behind the Macy’s store on 7th Avenue through a process that involves unzipping them to let out the helium, lying on top of the balloon, and then rolling up the balloon to squeeze out any remaining air. Which sounds like how I deflate my air mattress ha ha.
They say that a if the people doing it are really good they can deflate a balloon in 15 minutes or less. Wow!
