Twain’s Appearance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade had humble beginnings compared to what it has become over the years. The first parade was 96 years ago and included Macy’s employees, professional bands, and live animals from the Central Park Zoo. Their destination was the flagship Macy’s store in Macy’s Herald Square. Once there, Santa Clause was enthroned on the balcony of the 34th street store. While successful, there was little media coverage of the event.
Almost a century later, watching the parade has become a Thanksgiving tradition for families all over the country. The parade boasts huge floats, celebrity guests, and musical performances.
Twain’s stardom rose quickly enough that she was able to sit atop a float in the iconic parade less than a year after releasing her breakout album.
