The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is Day #13 of the 25 Days of Thanksgiving Series. The Parade is one of the highlights of Thanksgiving for our family. We have always looked forward to watching it while the turkey is cooking in the kitchen. It is so much fun to see the floats, marching bands and balloons!

I thought it would be neat to learn about the history of how this parade got started. I found a few books about it:




Balloons Over Broadway   by Melissa Sweet






Milly and the Macy’s Parade   by Shana Corey






Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade   by Robert M. Grippo






Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade: A New York City Holiday Tradition   by Stephen M. Silverman





LIFE: America’s Parade  by Editors of Life





You can read about the history of the Macy’s parade HERE on Wikipedia and HERE on History.com .


There isn’t much more to share about this subject. I hope that you enjoy the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with your family this year! Maybe if you study it a little bit for school, your kids will be super excited about watching it! I know we always enjoy it here at our house.
