This person actually makes reference to the parade and mentions
someone they know that taped it (a longshot I know).  Here is a quote
from the website.  Perhaps if this person can be contacted:

"The Ziggy balloon is actually an aspect of commercial Thanksgiving
that, unlike stereotypical presentations of "Indians" & dead
presentations of turkeys, I don't have objections to... so I was part
of a 15-20 person crew holding down the helium-filled rendition of
everyone's shortest cartoon character. The parade was broadcast
throughout Pennsylvania & surrounding regions & maybe even elsewhere
(though Boston evidently chose Detroit this year instead of Philly),
taped by the Myers family, & broadcast an hour before dinner in their
living room..."

I have found that web site

but I have no idea how to contact them.  So i really need another
source that may have the parade on tape.
