This 1950s Footage of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Will Make You Feel Like a Kid Again

The first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade took place in 1924 after they had just expanded their store, an idea they borrowed from Gimbel’s Department Store. This holiday event was a huge success and soon became a yearly tradition, even more so once it was broadcast on television. The grand floats, incredible balloons, and sheer excitement made it an event to remember each year. Even watching it on television, you could still feel the excitement in the air.

Have a look at this wonderful home movie footage of the parade and be taken back in time to the wonder of being a kid and the excitement of the holidays through a child’s eyes. From the belles in yellow to the balloon of Might Mouse, this wonderful video really takes me back! Have a look below.

Did your family watch the parade on television when you were young? Do you still watch it? Let us know in the comments!
