Floaty Croc + Balloon Dog + Flying Pig = Best Parade Ever

Guys, check out how awesome the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade used to be. (NOTE: For the record, I still think it's awesome and totally might go this year.)

These photos are from the New York Public Library archives and depict the 1932 Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Check out this little pig and tiny policeman/soldier guy boppin down the street! The balloons are so small!


Did this balloon fly away by accident? I can't even tell what it is. A cat? I think these pictures are so funny.

Check out this floaty guy! It looks like a little weird-shouldered monster, and then it looks like it's trying to King Kong the Empire State Building.

Good times. Remember how everyone in America got rickrolled on last year's parade? That ruled.
