History with the Macy's Parade
The partnership between Macy's and Entenmann's first started in 2017, as they rolled out a brand-new float titled "Everyone's Favorite Bake Shop". Taking 15 gallons of paint and over 100 hours of work, the float showcases the fun and enjoyment of baking tasty confections with family and friends. Designed to mirror a colorful bakery, the float evokes the fun spirit of the brand, complete with bursting confetti, rotating donuts, and displays of mouthwatering desserts, in addition to a cupcake that shoots confetti and a special bicycle-like contraption which helps stir the dough for all the tasty treats. At the front of the float, children peer in the windows as they browse their favorite confectionaries, such as muffins, danishes, cookies, cupcakes, muffins, pies, and more. The float still makes appearances as of 2020.
