45 timeless, fun and downright weird scenes from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade — originally known as the Macy's Christmas Parade — was first held in 1924, and although it was planned as a one-time event, its popularity inspired Macy's to begin what has grown into an 88-year Thanksgiving tradition.
This year's parade will run from 9 a.m. through noon on Thursday, Nov. 27, and will feature numerous bands — including the American Fork High School Marching Band — performers, balloons and floats.
Here's a photographic look at the parade's history, with highlights including creepy floats, Donny Osmond riding a turkey, balloon calamities and a trip back to the magical years of childhood.
