Look! Up in the Sky!...The First Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade occurred November 27, 1924. It started at 9 am from the intersection of 145th St. and Convent Avenue. The route was six miles long from Harlem to Herald Square where the flagship Macy’s store was located. Floats in the parade featured Little Miss Muffett, Little Red Riding Hood, and The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe to match the Nursery Rhyme theme Macy’s had in its window display. Macy’s employees were in the parade as well and were dressed as clowns, cowboys and knights. The parade included animals on loan from the Central Park Zoo. The animals were later replaced by character balloons which is what we see today. And, of course, Santa Claus was the highlight of the parade just as he is now!
