Sinclair Oil to Introduce New Balloon at 2022 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade®

Sinclair DINO Balloon

Sinclair has charmed fans with its DINO balloon since 1963

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Nov. 2, 2022 – This Thanksgiving, Sinclair Oil, an HF Sinclair (NYSE:DINO) brand, will once again take to the sky over New York City during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® with the introduction of a new official Parade balloon. First appearing as part of the Parade in 1963, Sinclair Oil has designed its latest balloon to feature company icon DINO with a smaller, look-alike held tightly to his back as they float through the air. Together, the two dinosaurs measure 68 feet long, 26 feet wide and 49 feet tall.

“HF Sinclair is thrilled to once again partner with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to showcase our new giant balloon, representing a commitment to the next generation,” said Jack Barger, senior vice president of marketing for HF Sinclair. “We're honored to once again be part of this heartwarming tradition, along with millions of Americans, this Thanksgiving.”

On March 14, 2022, Sinclair Oil was acquired by HollyFrontier, forming the new HF Sinclair. Founded more than a century ago, information about Sinclair Oil stations—and DINO—can be found at

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will air nationwide in the U.S. on NBC and stream on Peacock, on Thursday, Nov. 24, 2022, from 9 a.m.- noon; in all time zones.
