Paddington flies high in NYC

The Paddington balloon sailed over the heads of the millions lining the streets in New York City for the traditional annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The larger than life balloon is 60 feet tall (as high as a five storey building, his suitcase was as big as a garage door!), as long as 9 bicycles and requires over 90 people to help steer it through New York streets and keep his paws firmly on the ground, or close to!

With snow flurries Paddington kept warm with this traditional duffle coat whilst making his way from Upper West Side to Herald Square and thus kicking off the holiday season.
