Mickey Mouse Month continues here at Tulgey Wood, and today Mickey helps us celebrate Thanksgiving Day. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade always brightens things up. Today, the annual pageant will undoubtedly lift the spirits of those in New York and new Jersey and throughout the East who were so badly impacted by Superstorm Sandy. In 1934, the parade brought a smile to spectators in the depths of the Great Depression with the addition of the spectacular Mickey Mouse balloon, seen below. Designed by Walt Disney and his artists and built by Goodyear, Mickey soared over Manhattan, sending spirits soaring too, if only for a few moments. (Look closely—click on the image for a larger view—and you can see the Macy's trademark star on Mickey's chest.) Happy Thanksgiving, one and all!
