Parade of the Big Balloons
November 29, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Since 1991, the Spirit of Springfield has helped welcome Santa Claus to town with Springfield’s own 75-foot inflatable “Cat in the Hat”, a few of his inflatable friends, bands and colorful contingents. At 11AM on the day after Thanksgiving, they promenade down Main Street, entertaining crowds estimated at 70,000.
