Macy understood the excitement and gave the fans of the parade a delightful summit of new characters who will be seen flying over us in New York's annual holiday tradition.
The new balloons were tested on a flight to New Jersey on Saturday "under the guidance of Macy's highly qualified flight management team," the press release said.
"Together with several hundred manipulators, the team will remove balloons from a test run outdoors to get a first-hand experience of flying new stars before their Thanksgiving debut," the release said.
What are the new characters?
The balloons include the Snoopy Beagle, which Macy says has an "outside world" as an astronaut this year.
The balloon is 49 feet high, the store reported.

"And as part of Macy's Parade's Blue Sky Gallery series, which invites contemporary artists to recreate works of art as balloons, Yayoi Kusama's Love Flies to Heaven will debut," the release said.
The celebration of Macy's 93rd Thanksgiving will be on November 28.
