The Corny-Copia Clowns, formerly known as Cloe's Clowns, are a unit of clowns in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
History with the Macy's Parade
The Corny-Copia Clowns, then known as Cloe's Clowns, first appeared in 2005, heralding the brand-new Cloe the Holiday Clown balloon down the Parade route, hence the name. The clown unit appeared alongside the Cloe balloon until 2009. In 2010, they were renamed to the Thanksgiving Corny-Copia Clowns, and were moved to the Thanksgiving unit of the Parade, escorting the Pilgrim Man and Pilgrim Woman Balloonheads en route to 34th Street. In 2011, the clown unit's name was shortened, now being known simply as the "Corny-Copia Clowns".
