The year is 1966 – and this is definitely Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Macy’s began holding what was then Macy’s Christmas Parade in 1924. Originally, the balloons were released to the heavens at the parade’s end. This short tradition ended in 1932 as a safety measure to protect aviators. Television spread the acclaim of the Macy’s Parade, shortly after World War II ended. By the time this 1966 photo of Santa Claus, the Macy’s Parade was as much a part of our modern Thanksgiving celebration as turkey, pumpkin pie, and football.
