The leaves change and pumpkin spice is on the shelves, which can only mean one thing: It’s almost Thanksgiving!
At this time of year, it’s hard to ignore one of the longest running Thanksgiving traditions – the world-famous annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This legendary New York parade from 1924 always kept us on the edge of our seats, with various actors, fancy floats, meticulous group dances and surprising celebrity performances!
Starting from a Christmas parade, this tradition has slowly grown into the incredible event it is today and eventually becomes more than just a simple parade. Do you remember when resilient New York firefighters walked the streets of Manhattan in early September 2001 after the tragic September 11th attacks? Or what about Ariana Grande‘s uplifting rendering of Wham!“Last Christmas” in 2013?
The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a beacon of joy and unites Americans with a common message: What can we be thankful for today?
