Some time back I (along with some 2161 other folks) signed an online petition to bring Spider-Man’s balloon back to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. Well, after three block-buster movies, and a date with Broadway in 2010, Spidey is Back!
You read that right, Spider-Folk! Spidey will return to the parade this year!
Marvel and Macy’s have announced that, after far too long of an absence, the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man will be making a triumphant return to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this year. I had stopped watching this thing years ago, but with a little one in the house now, it’s back on the Must See docket of holiday specials, and I do admit that I was kind of curious as to how and why I managed to miss Spidey this last go-round. This press release solved that mystery and cheered my day just a little bit.
I might have to actually watch the parade this year!
