This year marks the 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in the Big Apple. I love to have the parade on every Thanksgiving while I’m preparing my home for guests. Every year more than 50 million people tune in to see the floats passing through the streets of Manhattan. Here’s a slideshow of some of my favorites floats from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade:
In 1927, Felix the Cat became the first giant balloon featured at the Macy’s Day Parade.
Mickey Mouse in 1934 and 2009
Superman in the 1950’s
Dacshund float in the 1950’s
Bullwinkle in 1961 Macy’s Elf in the late 1940s.
Pink Panther (Suddenly this is stuck in my head: Pink Panther Theme)
