I love parades, and never get tired of watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade every year on TV. I did a little light internet surfing and found the following photos of Disney balloon entries from parades past. I don't take claim for any photo or the information given with photos...just sharing with you what I found! Enjoy!
