This fall the millions who take part in watching the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be able to see SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment's unique float debut.  The float will be titled "A Sea of Surprises" and stretch 32 feet long and stand 27 feet tall.

"From sea turtles, penguins and angel fish to sharks and breaching whales, amazing sea sculptures abound on the new float. Featuring rolling ocean waves, the gentle movement of swaying kelp and a vibrant school of tropical fish, the scene will take spectators on an extraordinary undersea journey. Taking center stage on the “A Sea of Surprises” float is the iconic Shamu, breaching 27-feet above the millions of Parade spectators lining the streets of Manhattan."

“We are thrilled to debut our SeaWorld “A Sea of Surprises” float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as a tribute to SeaWorld’s 50th celebration,” said Jim Atchison, President and CEO of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. “Next year the parks will commemorate this milestone with a year-long celebration at the three SeaWorld parks in San Diego, Orlando and San Antonio. We hope this festive float represents the fun, inspiration and surprises that guests will find during a visit to SeaWorld.”

SeaWorld Parks across the nation will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the parks with a long celebration that includes numerous surprises and special events.  The 87th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will take place on Thursday, November 28th 2013 and be aired on NBC.
