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.

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.
