The first Macy’s Parade took place in 1924 and was referred to as the Macy’s Christmas Parade. It started as a gimmick to promote Macy’s stores, the employees dressed as various characters like clowns and cowboys, and walked Central Park Zoo animals along a 60-mile-long route that stretched from Midtown Manhattan to Harlem.
