For the first time in the Parade’s history, we will be introducing custom made, giant helium balloons to the streets of Rome on January 1st.
The team at Megaflatables have been working on Roman inspired designs and we can’t wait to lead them through the ancient streets of the Italian capital. Megaflatables are one of the market leaders in bespoke designed inflatables, supplying every conceivable shape and size.
Balloons for 2019 include:
Roma, 1° Gennaio
Welcoming in 2019 with a bang! The Rome New Year balloon starts off the celebrations of all things Rome, brandishing the colours of the Italian flag and one of the most iconic sights of the Eternal City, the magnificent Colloseo.
Representing the great Senators of ancient Rome like, Julius Cesar, Cicero, Augustus and Constantine the Great our Sentator in larger than life and carrying in his hand the first proclamation of 2019, which tell us to enjoy the Parade and have a happy 2019!
Brandendo il suo tridente con lo scudo e la faccia truce, il nostro Gladiatore è sempre in allerta e pronto a lottare per la vita per intrattenere le folle. Cosa diranno le mani di Cesare, pugno chiuso o mano aperta per lasciarlo combattere un altro giorno.
L’impavido e temuto Centurione con la sua uniforme da legionario romano vola sopra la folla, sempre pronto a formare la “testugine” la famosa e impenetrabile formazione da guerra per proteggere Roma dai barbari predoni.
Balloon handlers on January 1st will be students and supporters of Hickory Ridge High School Choral Ensemble, North Carolina, USA & Lambert High School Chamber Orchestra & Chorus, Georgia, USA.
Participants for the Rome New Year Parade & Festival will be announced throughout the next few months.
