It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...the Thanksgiving Day balloons?  

With turkey day just three weeks away, Citi Field wants to make sure all the balloons are in perfect shape to fly down the streets of Manhattan.

Citi Field hosted a "test-fly" for five new balloons that will be making an appearance at Macy's 90th annual Thanksgiving Day Parade.

How exciting!

With the help of hundreds of volunteers, the parking lot turned into a playground as Greg Heffley from "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," critters from the new movie "Trolls," and a replica of the original 1927 Felix the Cat balloon (the first balloon to ever fly in the parade) were all inflated to reveal their designs.  

As reported by Curbed NY, the Charlie Brown balloon, which hasn't been inflated since 2012, will be debuting a new look.  

While we don't know specifics yet, according to Yahoo, we do know that the balloon will be 53-feet-long, 46-feet-tall, and 31-feet-wide. This will be sure to catch your eye.   

About 30 balloons will fly in the parade with this years including some favorites: Spongebob, the Macy's star, Thomas the Tank and many, many more.
