 GOOFY TAKES A TEST FLIGHT AS MACY'S NEWEST GIANT BALLOON
 NEW YORK, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Goofy, the adoringly silly Walt Disney character, joins this year's spectacular parade lineup as the newest member of Macy's parade family of giant balloons. To prepare for his appearance in the upcoming Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Goofy will make his debut flight at a test inflation.
 At full inflation, Goofy measures 65 feet tall, from the top of his hat to the tip of his shiny black boots (which measure 8-3/4 feet). Dressed as Santa Claus, Goody finds himself tangled up in a holly wreath and brightly colored lights.
 There will be a special appearance by Goofy, Disney's celebrated character, straight from Walt Disney World in Florida, who will join in the festivities as he helps inflate the giant replica of himself. Goofy will stay on to meet and greet children.
 Goofy is sponsored by the Walt Disney Company.
 WHEN: Sunday, Nov. 15
 Balloon inflation begins at Noon
 Test flight begins at 1 p.m.
 WHERE: Macy's Herald Square, Broadway and 34th Street
