Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade by Robert M. Grippo and Christopher Hoskins

Forget the turkey and gravy: For some Americans, it just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Founded in 1924, the parade didn’t see its now-iconic giant helium balloons until the ’30s, when they were pulled through Manhattan via horse. Now, the parade is an hours-long spectacle featuring Broadway performances, marching bands, celebrity appearances, and oodles of those famous giant balloons. Relive the history of America’s most famous parade with Robert M. Grippo and Christopher Hoskins’ book, which highlights each decade of the spectacle’s history from the very first parade to the present day.
