Fans continue to see Charlie Brown in the parade. The eighth - and current - Peanuts balloon is our round-headed friend, flying his kite. So far, he has appeared in the 90th annual parade in 2016, in the 91st parade in 2017, and again in the 92nd parade in 2018.

2020's 94th annual parade was very unusual. Due to COVID19, there was no in-person audience. The massive balloons were not flown by handlers; they were driven by utility vehicles. Astronaut Snoopy was back, continuing his record as the longest-running balloon character.
