The 84th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade will be shown on NBC starting at 9AM EST and will conclude at 12PM EST and will be shown from 8AM CST till 11AM CST in the Central time zone.
The parade was suspended from 1942-1944 because the rubber and helium used for the balloons were needed for the war effort.
The 2010 parade will feature Jessica Simpson and Kanye West and many lesser known names. The official website gives history and the parade lineup tomorrow morning:
My dad was 10 years old when the first parade was held and will be 96 on Friday so he has been alive for the entire run of the parade.
Happy Thanksgiving to all readers of Nostalgia and Now.
The parade is featured in Miracle On 34th Street and was the first major film in which Natalie Wood appeared. She was nine years old when the movie was released.
