First Thanksgiving Parade

The first Thanksgiving Day Parade was put on by Gimbels department store. Ellis Gimbel ran the Philadelphia store and came up with the idea in 1920 to help boost holiday sales. On November 25, Gimbel, several dozen employees and a 15-car motorcade marched down Market Street to the store. The parade still continues annually and is the oldest Thanksgiving Day Parade in the U.S.
