It's a Thanksgiving Day tradition, not only for New York but for a TV-watching nation as well: the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. In 2018, it will start at 9 a.m. ET, Thursday, November 22, and Macy's says there's two and half miles of public viewing along the route.
TallMan.Promo has produced countless custom inflatables over the years. For the most part inflatable installation is relatively simple – a one-man job. This enormous replica jellyfish that we produced for The Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa - complete with LED lighting – provided a bit of a challenge.
Normally, inflatables are equipped with D-rings sewn into the reinforced fabric so they can easily be secured to the ground with straps and/or stakes. A blower is used to inflate it. In this case, the massive jellyfish inflatable had to be hoisted up and hauled across the ceiling. The installer – dangling by a safety harness - used huge ropes to suspend it in the colossal glass enclosure called the Queen’s Lantern. As well, the inflatable has LED lights INSIDE it so those had to be connected and illuminated properly. A large task but well worth the time and expertise of the installer. It looks amazing!
This is a perfect example of how we can create a custom animal replica inflatable. We made it to resemble a species of jellyfish called Pelagia noctiluca , or a mauve stinger. The LED lights illuminating it help make it look spectacular at night!
TallMan.Promo has products ranging from small point-of-sale inflatables to inflatable tents to giant rooftop inflatables more the 100ft. tall. We have extensive experience working with clients from design phase to completion to find the exact size and shape of finished products to bring your idea to life. We have produced hot air balloon style inflatables, animals, musical-themed inflatables, archways, custom-made tents – nearly every size and shape is possible or we can suggest options.

TallMan.Promo had the pleasure of producing an awe-inspiring snow wolf for the Alberta Ballet, as part of Nuit Blanche 2018 Edmonton. Nuit Blanche Edmonton organizers called the event a ‘labour of love and commitment’. The wolf was created in collaboration with artist Cameron Farn. His artistic vision is ‘fueled by his fascination for discovery and limitless possibilities of imaginative play.’
‘Alberta Ballet’s Snow Wolves illuminate our evening passage towards the dawn by providing a space of respite and calm,’ said the artist. ‘Their heavenly (divine?) presence reached out with gentle rays of light and welcomes the weary to rest.’
Nuit Blanche Edmonton
The event was about building a better city, situating contemporary art practices by visionary designers, artists, architects and creatives and connecting the works with urban spaces while mixing in the passion and enthusiasm of Edmontonians.
Cameron is the creative director and lead designer for a specialty fabricator. The Calgary native’s role as a consulting artist and technical designer has afforded him the opportunity and experience to develop a unique form language.
The snow wolf was a popular part of the Nuit Blanche in the prairie province and the second artistic inflatable that TallMan.Promo produced during the Fall. See our previous post on the work we did for Toronto-based artist birdO for a 40-foot inflatable based on Kirtland’s Warbler, a small songbird that rose above a garden podium at 150 York/181 University Ave., during Toronto’s Nuit Blanche.
What are Cold Air Inflatables?
Cold-Air (or Continuous Air) inflatables are made from breathable fabrics and require a constant supply of air provided by an air blower. Tallman.Promo provides both battery and outlet powered air blowers. When switched on this air-blower will fill the inflatable with air and keep it inflated. When switched off it will stop blowing air which will automatically deflate the billboard. These units will keep going even with small leaks. Most of the large inflatables we sell are cold-air inflatables.
TallMan.Promo has proudly produced our custom inflatables for a variety of purposes for many satisfied clients. Our balloons are used to catch the eye, to relay a message, and to get your business, organization, product or special event the attention it deserves! We can match your ideas with our expertise to find the right inflatable for you.

The artist known as birdO took his street-art aesthetic and transformed it into his first monumental sculpture for the garden podium, an urban oasis above 150 York Street/181 University Avenue. His vibrant hybrid of animal forms and abstraction rose above the trees and brought the secluded space alive with a playful sculpture.
For this piece, the artist was inspired by the Kirtland’s Warbler, a small songbird that nearly became extinct just 50 years ago and is now on it’s way to recovery. Requiring large areas of dense young jack pine that was historically created by wildfire, today this habitat is primarily created through the harvest of mature jack pine, and planting of seedlings. For Nuit Blanche in Toronto birdO has transformed the image of this tiny creature into an epic sculpture, rising out of an abstract base. The 40ft high inflatable loomed large over the downtown core.
