The Corny-Copia Clowns, formerly known as Cloe's Clowns, are a group of clowns from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
History with the Macy's Parade
The Corny-Copia Clowns, then known as Cloe's Clowns, made their debut in the 2005 Macy's Parade. The clown group appeared alongside the newly-introduced Cloe the Holiday Clown balloon, leading the famed goliday spectacle along the streets of NYC. Following this appearance, the clown group was moved to a later point in the lineup, still appearing alongside their guardian angel, Cloe.
In 2010, the clowns were moved to the Thanksgiving unit of the Parade and were renamed to the "Thanksgiving Corny-Copia Clowns." With a bounty of boundless energy, the clowns escorted the Pilgrim Man and Woman Balloonheads along the Parade route. The clowns were once again renamed to simply the "Corny-Copia Clowns" the following year.
In 2019, the Corny-Copia Clowns would don roller blades with bunches of bright balloons and kick off the line of march, taking the former position of the Hi-Roller Skating Clowns.
For reimagined 2020 Parade, the clown group was once again moved to a later point in the lineup, still gliding down 34th Street on their roller blades.
In the 2021 Macy's Parade, the Corny-Copia Clowns carried signs proclaming "Thankful Since 1924," referring to the year the Parade first took place.
