Our giant inflatable helium parade balloons and parade floats will boost your brand identity and uplift bottom line sales, especially in this tough economy. Whether you need a smaller helium parade balloon for a smaller hometown parade or huge helium parade balloons for a major holiday celebration, we will work with you to appropriately size the balloon to fit your parade route, specifications, and budget. It starts with you providing your design, picture, or concept drawing.
We offer design services. Just let us know what you’re dreaming of and we will make it a reality!
Late in 2010 and again early spring 2011 we were contacted by the parade organizers of the first ever “Children’s Parade” to take place in Mexico City, MX July of 2011. They’d contacted other parade balloon manufacturers throughout the World and made the decision to go with Big Ideas Parade Giants.
The requirements and challenge were to produce 10 large helium parade balloons for the event of various well known characters in Mexico and others including Spiderman, Mickey Mouse, and Phineas and Ferb. After several weeks of consulting back and forth and time running short, in May of 2011 the balloon lineup was finalized. Now for the hard work. How to build 10 giant parade balloons in 8 weeks. Normally, 1 parade balloon can take a minimum of 4 weeks up to 12 weeks or longer to produce. We had 10 parade balloons ranging in size from 38 ft – 95 ft. To make a very long story short, due to a raging forest fire threatening our balloon studio and repeated fire evacuation orders in Sierra Vista, AZ, and some final details that needed additional design work, the production group we put together committed to 7 of those 10 balloons. All of those 7 balloons were completed on time, delivered, and flown down the parade route in front of 350,000 plus people on July 17, 2011.
Do not hesitate to contact us with your parade or special event needs. We manufacture all types and sizes of parade balloons, inflatable float decorations, cold air balloon displays and props, and airtight inflatables. Our quality and capabilities are evident in our work and we deliver on time.
