Truck Towing Santa Claus Float in Parade


Color photo of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Macy's storefront can be seen in the background. A cream and white International Harvester Scout 4x4 is pulling a float with a Santa Claus theme. On the float, a group of reindeer are rising at an angle with Santa Claus in a sleigh behind. On the side of the float are children dressed in green as elves, and women in white clothes with red skirts and capes with white trim. Yellow balloons are rising into the air around the float. Alongside the float is a band in what appears to be Scottish dress, as well as spectators, camera crews, and uniformed police officers. Some of the band members are holding flags.
