WHAT: The 2022 Stamford Downtown Parade Spectacular is officially kicking off on Thursday, November 10 with a balloon training session and press conference. Volunteer balloon handlers and representatives from Stamford Downtown Special Services will gather under the Daniel Tiger balloon to announce details of the parade set for Sunday, November 20, 2022. Full media kits will be provided.
David Kooris, President of Stamford Downtown Special Services District will inform the media of the various details surrounding the 2022 Stamford Downtown Parade Spectacular, including event logistics and the amazing roster of talent. Immediately following the press conference, the media will be presented with a photo opportunity as volunteer balloon handlers learn to maneuver the Daniel Tiger balloon.
Our guest parade balloon, Daniel Tiger is based on “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,” an animated program for preschoolers ages 2 to 4 which airs daily on PBS KIDS. The program builds on the legacy of the pioneering PBS series, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. The star of the series is Daniel Tiger, the shy young son of Fred Rogers’ much-loved puppet Daniel Stripe-ed Tiger, who has grown up, married Mom Tiger, and now lives on Jungle Beach. This award-winning series tells its engaging stories about the life of a preschooler using musical strategies grounded in Fred Rogers’ landmark social-emotional curriculum. Through imagination, creativity and music, Daniel and his friends learn the key social skills necessary for school and for life. Daniel stands at 40 feet tall and filled with 3,000 cubic feet of helium!
