I always wanted my parents to take me to see this. Did you know that Macy's has been hosting this parade since 1924?
Back in the 20's lots of Macy's department store employees were first-generation immigrants, because they were so proud of their heritage as Americans, they wanted to celebrate the US holiday of Thanksgiving with the same type of festival their parents had loved in Europe. The parade was started by Louis Bamberger in 1924. He had been transferred from the Bamberger's store in NJ to New York City by Macy's. The employees marched to Macy's flagship store on 34th Street dressed in vibrant costumes. There were floats, and professional bands, they even borrowed live animals from the Central Park Zoo. At the end of that first parade, as has been the case with every parade since, Santa Claus was welcomed into Herald Square. At this first parade, however, Santa was seated on his throne on the Macy's balcony at the 34th Street store entrance, where he was then crowned King of the Kiddies. There was an audience of over a quarter of a million people, and the parade was such a success that Macy's declared it would become an annual tradition, which has now been carried on for the last 84 years.
