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
Cloe's Clowns made their first Parade appearance in the 2005 Parade, heralding the brand-new Cloe the Holiday Clown balloon down the Parade route, hence the group's name. The clown unit appeared alongside the Cloe balloon until 2009.
In 2010, the clown unit was 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 changed once more, now being known simply as the "Corny-Copia Clowns".
The Corny-Copia Clowns would don a pair of roller blades and carry bouquets of bright balloons for the 2019 Parade, now kicking off the Parade festivities alongside the NYPD Highway Patrol Motorcycle Brigade and replacing the Hi-Roller Skating Clowns.
For the reimagined 2020 Parade, the Corny-Copia Clowns were moved to a later position in the Parade lineup, marching alongside the Turkey Tech Players & Sports Fans clown group.
