Business boomed at the company's flagship store in Manhattan's Herald Square, so much so that it expanded in 1924 to cover an entire city block. That's when the bosses decided to kick off the holiday shopping season with a New York Thanksgiving parade. Read more on ThanksgivingPOOR AL! Today fans...
    Bus and trailers that were expected to be used in the 96th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City have been burnt to a crisp in a 'suspicious' fire, but it won't affect the celebrations.  A groundskeeper noticed the vehicles parked at Royal Buses Inc. had gone up in flames when they arrived around 6am on Monday, lighting up around seven buses and shooting flames through the parking lot.  It is unknown how the fire started and investigators are calling it 'suspicious' as a precaution.  The buses were supposed to be used starting on Tuesday in parade efforts, but it won't affect the annual event as the company, On Time Elite, has other vehicles parked in different locations. Those are expected to be used in the parade now.  Video of the event shows a ladder truck dousing the flames, while firefighters used hoses on the ground to control the blaze.  Seven buses and trailers went up in flames in Kearny, New Jersey, on Monday in a 'suspicious' fire.

According to the New York Times, when the parade started, it was a “procession,” which featured animals from the Central Park Zoo, including tigers and elephants.  When the famous balloons...

    (CNN)You know what they say, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is all fun and games until one of the balloons goes down. Since the parade started marching balloons around Manhattan in 1927, the massive floating figures have occasionally come untethered, blown clear away, or been punctured, stabbed, deflated and subjected to all sorts of ignominy. Macys Thanksgiving Parade: 6 fun things you may not knowWhile most of the balloon incidents are at least a little humorous (the hubris of man, to create such beasts!), a small handful of accidents have ended with people being seriously injured. Some of those cases have led the parade's organizers to change the rules regarding their most beloved -- and problematic -- parade participants. After all, a deflated Kermit here and there is just the way the parade floats, but there's nothing festive about people getting hurt. 1927: Felix is released to the giant cat motel in the skyImagine you're a parade-goer in 1927.

    Even a pandemic can’t stop the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The parade will not be joining the long list of canceled or now-digital events of 2020, opting instead to float on without any in-person spectators. The parade marks 94 years of celebration today, nearing closer and closer to a century of the Thanksgiving tradition. For the first time in the parade’s history, Verizon will offer a second screen experience via a virtual portal. If you’ve ever wanted to experience the parade in-person, believe it or not, 2020 is your year! From the comfort of your own cell phone, you’ll be transported to the center of activity in Herald Square with 360-degree views of the floats and performers. Along with the portal and the lack of in-person viewers, the parade will not march the traditional 2.5-mile route around Manhattan. It’ll wrap around Herald Square over the course of several days, in an effort to discourage large crowds from gathering. That all said, you can broadcast the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade safely and easily from home, with the new portal offering...

    New York (AP) – Jawan M. Jackson recently had to do something he had wanted to do for months – sing and dance again with his Broadway cast. Jackson, one of the stars of “Very Proud – The Life and Times of the Temptations”, reunited with actors for the first time since theaters closed to prepare for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade on Thursday. “I was so excited to see all of my old friends I hadn’t seen in months, some of them flew in especially for the show to do this,” he said. “It’s weird, but it’s still good to do.” The epidemic of closing theaters in March may have elevated most of the tradition this holiday season, but the annual New York City parade will be accompanied by balloons, dancers, floats, Broadway shows and Santa – albeit greatly modified for safety. “Traditions like this are comforting, they are advanced,” said Susan Tercero, executive producer of the parade. “New York has always been a tough city. It’s jumping back. It’s taking its steps and then continuing. I...
