Chicago Pride Parade 2017

This past Sunday we were float 31 in the Chicago Pride Parade. This is the 48th year of the parade and the 8th that Balloons by Tommy has been a part of it.

Life is Sweet!

“Life is Sweet!” was the theme of our float this year and we’re estimating that 43,000 balloons were used in our float display! If you missed the parade or just want to relive the fun of the day you can watch our official video below.



Photography

We asked Aneta from Netabug Photography and her mother walk us along the parade route again and they got some stellar shots!
