In honor of both Sonic the Hedgehog’s 20th anniversary and the release of Sonic Generations, Sega is putting the speedy little mammal front and center in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

An entirely new Sonic balloon has been crafted for the event, which you can see above, and it was recently test-flown in New Jersey to prepare for the big day. Make sure that you tune in to the National broadcast of the parade on Thanksgiving day and support Sega and the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.
