This is my 200th post. Boy, how time flies.
It just didn't seem like Thanksgiving unless I watched the Macy's Parade every year when I was growing up. Unfortunately, my wife doesn't like to watch parades on TV, so I have to sneak it in if I can.
I decided to search YouTube for some parade clips from the 70's and 80's. I found some from the 80's but none from the 70's. I did find a cool clip from the 60's though. I also threw in a few from the early 90's. Enjoy.
