Cirque du Soleil Prepares a Giant Ship DREAMSEEKER for Thanksgiving Day Parade

The 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is to be the site of Cirque du Soleil’s special giant float called DreamSeeker and spectacular performance. It is expected to be quite a show. You can also fly with Cirque du Soleil to attend the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 28, 2013 by winning a contest.

Since the past generation or so, Cirque du Soleil has been entertaining huge numbers of people around the world. On the occasion of Thanksgiving this year, the company will stun crowds of people with its unique float and parade. The float is named DREAMSEEKER.  Artists, magicians and acrobats have combined to lend the float a surreal air. It will be one of the longest, tallest and widest floats in the Parade with 52-feet in length, 23-feet in width and 35-feet in height.

Macy’s Parade Studio artists constructed this giant ship whose design is a result of Cirque du Soleil collaborated efforts with the Macy’s team. It is basically a gigantic sailing vessel with the only difference being that it will function on land. It has old fashioned wings and even sports bouncing equipment and Chinese poles. Going through the street it will be an entertainment source par excellence for all. Especially the acrobats will be performing feats of amazing dexterity and agility. 

“The imagination of millions of Macy’s Parade fans will soar once again as they marvel at the incredible new creation from Macy’s Parade Studio on behalf of Cirque du Soleil,” said Amy Kule, executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “This magnificent new float, the first entry from Cirque du Soleil, combines their extraordinary artistry and acrobatics with the creative and technical mastery of Macy’s Parade magicians. Both teams have collaborated to create a visually exciting float that will serve as the stage for incredible performances along the streets of New York and live from 34th Street. As they always do, the performers from Cirque du Soleil will dazzle the audience. We are honored to have them join the Parade.”

The people of Cirque du Soleil are happy working for Macy’s since the two hit it off from the beginning. Their talent and skills meld with each other and provide the best in showmanship for a rapt audience. 

“It is quite exciting to work with the Macy’s team on this project,” said Benoit Lusignan, Creative Content Designer of Cirque du Soleil Special Events. “Our mutual skills mesh together very well and we share the same commitment to impeccable design and entertainment. We are thrilled to create one of the grandest floats ever exhibited at the Parade, and to collaborate so closely with Macy’s experienced team,” Benoit added.

Furthermore, a raffle is being arranged in order to benefit lucky winners among the admirers of this show. The four people who will be the recipients of the top prizes will get free VIP access as well as round-trip airfare and 3-nights stay at a hotel with $500 cash and $500 Macy's gift card. And the winners will get to meet in person with Cirque du Soleil artists.
