When a lot of people think of Thanksgiving, they think of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I’ve been out of watching the current parade for a lot of years now, but I still like going back and watching the olds ones. With that in mind, let’s go 30 years back in time and relive the 1991 parade. Enjoy!
