Before the Parade Passes By, Buy SWAG

Girl Brass BandIf you are like me, one of the highlights of your Thanksgiving might be watching the famous Macy’s Day Parade. Immortalized in 1947’s “Miracle on 34th Street,” the classic holiday film starring Natalie Wood and Maureen O’Hara, the parade is well known for its large and colorful balloons, floats, and marching bands.

Several million people line the streets during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, while millions of other Americans view the yearly television broadcast. Beginning in 1927, Macy’s introduced its famous balloons. Did you know that the first Macy’s balloon animal was Felix the Cat?¬† The man behind many of the early Macy’s balloons was a marionette maker named Tony Sarg. For balloon loving kids and other members of your family, the children’s book “Balloons Over Broadway,” explains how Sarg created those balloons.¬† Part of the reason the Macy’s parade is so famous today is the department store’s willingness to maintain important traditions while appealing to younger generations. Each year, for example, Macy’s unveils new characters as well as classic holiday balloons, ranging from SpongeBob to Scooby Doo.
