Macy's Thanksgiving day parade

Had been to Macy's Thanks giving parade in New York city. Parade actually stems from European tradition.


In the 1920's many of Macy's department store employees were first-generation immigrants. Proud of their new American heritage, they wanted to celebrate the American holiday with the type of festival they loved in Europe.













The employees marched from 145 Street down to 34th Street dressed as clowns, cowboys, knights and sheiks. There were floats, professional bands and 25 live animals borrowed from the Central Park Zoo.


The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is a true New York experience that is magical for both children and adults.
