Every year thousands of people gather on the street and around the television to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade dates all the way back to 1924 when the first parade filled with Macy’s employees dressed in all manner of entertaining costumes paraded down the street to draw customers into Macy’s department store. It may have started as marketing but it captured the attention and imagination of all those watching and grew to the Monolith that it is today. You can read more of the story here. After you watch the modern day parade you can take a modern day bus tour with The RIDE. Get your tickets here!
