Happy Dragon is a novelty balloon from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Happy Dragon first appeared in 1960 and retired in 1981, and returned in 1991 and retired in 1992. Happy Dragon returned in 2012. He returned in 2016.


Macy's wanted to use the original Happy Dragon balloon from Goodyear in the 2012 parade, but the city of New York wouldn't let them fly the balloon because it was too big for the current limits of balloons, so hence why they made a smaller and newer balloon.
