John Piper's job is full of hot air.
He oversees all aspects of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, including the famous balloons that float above Manhattan's streets.
"People say so what's it like when your balloon finally comes to being? Magic, total magic," Piper said in an interview with CNBC's "Power Lunch."
This year will be Macy's 90th parade and Piper's 36th. It's also one of his most ambitious.
"The Trolls balloon has three characters hanging onto a fourth character. Four characters, one balloon, how are you going to make that work?", Piper said.
