Large Balloons coming to the Disney Christmas Parade!

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would talk to the people in the comic books,” said Toni McKay from  StarBound Entertainment.

On Christmas morning, the nation will see her work in the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. StarBound provided 14 balloons to the event, which was taped last week at Walt Disney World and will air on Christmas Day on ABC.

This is the second consecutive year that StarBound has contributed balloons to the Disney parade. Last year, the New Castle, Pa. based company created red and green Mickey Mouse ear balloons that appeared with featured performer Justin Bieber.

McKay said she was asked to create balloons that have tie-ins to Disney-related shows and movies, and to the parade’s feature performers. When she asked who the performers would be, McKay said parade organizers told her only that they were a country music act.

In addition to her Disney footprint, she has also provided balloons to the Philadelphia and Chicago Thanksgiving parades, the Cat in the Hat Parade, Pittsburgh’s Celebrate The Seasons parade, and a parade in Santiago, Chile.

Another Character Balloon that she does for another event - you might know.

McKay, a daughter of Louise and the late John Mazzant, also popped up on national television when her balloons were used last month in an episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

She said there are only three companies that provide parade balloons, and the competition is fierce. But McKay said she is proud that her company’s creations bring joy to paradegoers.
