Big Bay Balloon Parade features massive ‘Darth Stewie’

The Big Bay Balloon Parade rolls through Downtown San Diego Wednesday at 10 a.m. A massive “Darth Stewie” balloon will parade down Harbor Drives, as this year’s theme celebrates the release of “Family Guy: Something, Something, Something Dark Side” on DVD and Blu-Ray.

At 200 pounds, the 45-foot tall Stewie balloon necessitates 15 to 20 tanks of helium to inflate and requires at least 10 handlers to navigate.
