This book takes you back to the very first parade, "The Macy's Christmas Parade" as it was known in 1924. It follows the history of the parade and tells the story through newspaper accounts, fascinating memories from parade producers and participants and ads from every decade, including the three year period of World War II when the parade was not held.
The photographs are an amazing collection, many seen here for the very first time- dating back to the very first balloon, Felix The Cat. This is truly the "almanac" of the Macy Parade, and no parade lover should be without a copy! Written by 2 true Macy Parade fans, it is informative and entertaining. It is a "must have" keepsake of the greatest parade of all.
This is a very detailed, wonderful history, with tons of amazing pictures going all the way back to the 1920s! If you love New York, or just love parades, you've got to have this book...your children will love it, and so will your grandparents! Too bad they didn't make it larger, the photographs are amazing!
