Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

By Robert M. Grippo
& Christopher Hoskins

We're less than a week away from Thanksgiving! Family and food are very much a tradition for this holiday, and so is the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. For six decades many folks, especially children, have started their Thanksgiving Day off by watching this amazing parade on television. But the parade actually started much earlier in 1924, with real animals, instead of balloon animals. And what was the first balloon to appear in a Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade? Felix the Cat!

You can read even more fascinating facts, peruse vintage advertisements and photographs, and relive parades of the past in the entertaining photo filled book,
Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Robert Grippo devotes a chapter to each decade and writes knowledgeably and lovingly about all aspects of the parade. If you enjoy watching the parade, you'll certainly enjoy reading this book.

Reserve your copy of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
