While the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade fills the skies with familiar cartoon characters, the Skywalkers parade took a very different tack, creating a procession of bizarre, alien ballon creatures.

In 2006, FriendsWithYou opened Miami's Art Basel show with Skywalkers. The premise of the piece was a procession of universal entities coming together to welcome the Earth into the universal community. For one day, 18 of these oddly shaped blimps hovered over Miami Beach.
