Kalahari Resorts and Conventions to Debut Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Float

This year, America’s largest indoor waterpark will have a float in the 92nd Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

More than 3.5 million spectators lining the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade route and more than 50 million viewers watching the action at home are in for a real treat this year. Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, America's largest indoor waterpark, is debuting a new larger-than-life float in the 92nd Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

"The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is an iconic tradition that brings families together. At Kalahari, we believe that bringing family and friends together in a fun and exciting experience helps strengthen bonds of sharing in the community. We hope that families across America will enjoy the one-of-a-kind float we've created with Macy's," says Todd Nelson, owner of Kalahari Resorts and Conventions.

The new float will take its maiden voyage at this year's November 22 parade. The water park-themed float will feature an animated 12-foot-wide African elephant with other animals at a watering hole. Inspired by the art of African cultures, the entire float will be designed in a mosaic of bold colors and patterned wooden masks. The scene is meant to depict the majesty of the African continent and its human companions who together enjoy a relaxing and fun day at the lazy river. 

"Each year, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade team creates new inspired stages to float down the streets of New York and captivate millions all over the country," said Jordan Dabby, vice-president of partnership marketing for Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. "This year, with the addition of Kalahari Resorts and Conventions, our audience will be transported to Africa through colorful and imaginative scenes depicting both animals native to the continent and Kalahari family fun. This special float is undoubtedly one-of-a-kind and will delight our audience on Thanksgiving Day."

The 92nd Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade airs nationwide on NBC-TV, on Thursday, November 22 from 9:00am to noon in all time zones.
