A Look Back at The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parades of Years Past

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is as unavoidable as canned cranberry sauce. Yuck. It’s so gelatinous. How is it considered a sauce? I digress. But the fact remains: the iconic department store’s spectacle of giant balloons is the very fabric of our TV history.

And what’s TV without celebrities? The actors, singers and entertainers who have graced the Macy’s floats beckon us with their pearly white smiles and pageant show waves. Jessica Simpson, Miley Cyrus and some guy named Kanye are just a few of the folks who have enjoyed a traditional float ride. Please enjoy this walk down memory lane, courtesy of Macy’s.
