The momentous Macy’s Day Parade seen by more than 3.5 million people in New York and 50 million at home is a Thanksgiving staple full of balloons, floats and festive performances.
More than 60 years after the Thanksgiving holiday’s formal recognition in 1863, another tradition was born in 1924, according to Macy’s.
That year the department store held its first parade with animals from the Central Park Zoo. It was first called the Macy’s Christmas Parade and held by store employees.
