25 years ago, a balloon of Barney (the big purple dinosaur) found its demise at the 1997 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. It was a particularly windy Thanksgiving morning, causing a tear in the balloon that would eventually rip Barney's torso apart. It would then collapse on top of its wranglers and some of the crowd. To further set the scene, police officers reportedly attempted to stab the balloon to help it deflate even more. Probably not a good day to watch the parade with kids. Thanks to the magic of the internet (and YouTuber Sugar Daddy), you can still watch this event. Do you watch the Macy's Parade every year? Do you have a favorite balloon?
