Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade 1993
In 1993 Sonic made his debut in the famous Thanksgiving day parade held in New York City every year. He was introduced at the parade on NBC as the very first video game character at the parade, as a 65-foot balloon that took 4 people to hold down. He would later appear in the parade in both 1994 and 1995. Though reports also suggest that in 1993 that the winds picked up and pushed the Sonic the Hedgehog balloon into a lamppost, which caused it to explode and injure a off-duty police officer and 10-year-old girl from debris.
Sonic was also the first video game character to appear in the Rose Parade.
