In 1924, Macy’s founded the first New York Thanksgiving Parade (to celebrate both Thanksgiving and Christmas.). Since then, the parade has experienced almost 100 years of history – from floats to special guests, to unforeseen incidents). Tonight, follow the history of New York through the history of the parade.
We will trace how Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chanukah, and even New Year’s have evolved during major events in history (The Depression. WW2, NY World Series Wins, 2001, and the pandemic). Learn the origins of Black Friday and how New York has braced for impact every Friday after Thanksgiving.
Our expert, virtual NYC guide will be on hand for Q & A throughout the “tour”.
