Truck Towing Float in Thanksgiving Parade


Color photo of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Macy's storefront can be seen in the background. A red and white International Harvester Scout 4x4 truck is towing a float. On the float a woman wearing a black cape and pointed black "witch cap" is seated on a multi-colored horse, with another horse and children in colorful costumes arranged around her. A woman in white pants, red jacket, dark blue tri-corner hat, and white gloves with blue trim is walking beside the Scout. Spectators with yellow balloons and uniformed police officers are watching from the sidewalk.
