The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade — originally known as the Macy's Christmas Parade — was first held in 1924, and although the parade was planned as a one-time event, its popularity inspired Macy's to begin what has grown into an 87-year Thanksgiving tradition.

This year's parade is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. through noon on Thursday, Nov. 28, and will feature numerous bands, 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 nostalgic trip back to the magical years of childhood.
