This Thanksgiving, New York City will host the 84th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. This well-known holiday event began in 1924—originally called the Macy's Christmas Parade—and first featured animals from the Central Park Zoo. It wasn't until 1927 that the now-popular helium balloons were incorporated into the pageantry. As with any big event, the parade has had its share of ups and downs over the years. From torrential downpours on parade day to numerous balloon run-ins with lampposts, take a look back at some historical mishaps that may have disrupted the spectacle, but could never ruin the spirit of the day.
