11/27/1975 – ‘Thanksgiving Float.’

The 1975 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade marked the second appearance of a Sesame Street float as part of this much beloved New York tradition. The Muppets from Sesame Street continue to join the spectacle each year on a float joined by the human cast and often in the form of giant balloons. Read about Jim’s enthusiastic participation in Macy’s annual parade here and here.
