Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Disasters
by H. E. Lium
Ninety years in the parade business is a long time...but Macy's reaches that milestone in 2016. Their reign as heroes of helium is not without its problems, however. In Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Disasters, H. E. Lium (a former parade float coordinator) will regale you with tales of tipsy Rockettes, a Santa with a potty mouth, and the year (2005) the Garfield balloon took off the head of an Apollo statue in Central Park. Along with sound system malfunctions, West Coast high school bands whose instruments were lost in baggage claim, and disgruntled balloon tenders who robbed parade goers when they found out this was a volunteer gig, you'll wonder why someone at Macy's hasn't let the air out of their balloons and called it a day.
You'll watch this year's parade with new eyes after reading the sensational stories in this book.
