Stamford’s annual holiday balloon parade started twenty-two years ago and has become one of the largest events of its kind in the country, with giant helium balloons floating through Stamford Downtown. Last year it drew over 100,000 people, not only Stamford residents, but also spectators from the surrounding region and even nearby states. The giant balloons, of course, are the showstoppers of our parade.
The American Bus Association announced that the Parade Spectacular has been named to the Top 100 Events across the country for 2010 and the Parade also won that award in 2007 and 2001. Moffly Publications awarded the Parade Spectacular a “Best of the Gold Coast” award for the “Most Uplifting Event in CT.” in 2007. And don’t miss the Balloon Inflation Party sponsored by Point72 Asset Management on Saturday, November 21 from 3-6pm on Hoyt Street at Summer. Get a backstage look at the balloons as they come to life. Performances from FLIPPENOUT Extreme Trampoline, music, dancing with Locust Performing Arts Center of Stamford, and costumed characters will greet and delight spectators. So, don’t let the parade pass you by! The UBS Parade Spectacular starts on Summer and Hoyt Streets at 12 noon sharp on November 22. The Parade proceeds south on Summer, East on Broad, then South on Atlantic Street. It ends at Federal Street.
