Found in the 2008 November issue of Real Simple:

"17,320 cubic feet...The amount of helium it takes to inflate the Hello Kitty balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The pneumatic feline, the parade's largest balloon in terms of helium capacity, stands 33 1/2 feet tall and 45 feet long. This fall marks the store's 150th birthday and its 82nd parade."
