The first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade


The first Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York took place in 1914, when Macy's employees dressed in vibrant costumes and marched to the flagship store on 34th Street. The parade used floats instead of balloons, and it featured monkeys, bears, camels, and elephants, all borrowed from the Central Park Zoo.
