Editorial Reviews

You can t have Thanksgiving without turkey, and you certainly can t have Thanksgiving without the Macy s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

It was once a simple walk down Broadway, but it has become a full-scale American institution watched by millions. HISTORYTM traces the evolution of the celebrated parade from simple horse-drawn floats to one of the most sophisticated and high-tech extravaganzas in the world. Discover the humble beginnings of the parade and go behind the scenes of its current production, a massive year-long undertaking that requires thousands of skilled craftspeople, volunteers, planners, and designers.

Focusing on the history and impact of New York s celebrated holiday spectacle, INSIDE MACY S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE chronicles the vision and dedication that has given birth to one of America s most cherished traditions.

As a child I watched my first Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC, at age three (1963). Watching the sights and hearing the sounds- I was taken with the visual treat of gigantic cartoon characters floating between the skyscrapers of Broadway. The balloons and the melodic sounds of the music of Milton DeLugg, enjoying his first year as the parade's musical director had me hooked. I knew that one day- I wanted to become a designer of giant helium filled balloons and one day- march in that great parade! Well, Macy's designs and creates their own balloons....but the dream of being a part of the Macy parade came true when I was invited to help lead the huge Charlie Brown balloon down Broadway- 2002. I have shared massive amounts of archival material with Macys and have had the honor of being a part of their parade every year since! As for the balloon designer dream- 2010 marks my 23rd year as a designer-creator of giant helium parade balloons for parades and events all over the country and abroad! So, when my friends at Macys suggested to Al Roker Entertainment to consider me as a part of the documentary "Inside Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade", I was thrilled and delighted to say the very least. In addition to great interviews, I supplied photographs and home movie footage from my own archives and led the producers to a trail of vintage- never before seen historic footage- which I am proud to say made the final cut of the special. As a participant in this amazing special- I would highly suggest this DVD to anyone who has ever seen the parade, marched in the parade or just loves a parade. You are in for a real treat. It's a real keepsake and makes a wonderful gift! There is no parade on earth like the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and yes, I love the parade!

I showed this to my second/third grade class and they were enthalled! They got excited when they began seeing balloon characters they recognized. Then I watched it with extended family over the Thanksgiving holiday and everyone from the 1 and 1/2 year old to the 70+ year-old enjoyed it. There is amazing footage of early parades as well as behind the scenes shots of modern parades. The pace and the voice over are lively, which helps hold your interest. Well worth the price.

I played this for a senior citizens group before thanksgiving. They loved it, and it increased thier enjoyment of the thanksgiving day parade. It shows how the floats are made.

I went to the Macy's Thanksgiving parade for the first time in 2011. It was a wonderful experience! The film covered the history of the parade and was interesting.

I have always loved this parade since I was a boy (1963), so that is a long time ago. So I know The History Channel does a fantastic job in presenting their programs and this certainly is one I will watch all year long! I love it!
