History in the Parade
Jennie-O will make its Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade debut in the re-imagined 2020 Parade with a brand-new float, celebrating the company's 80th anniversary milestone. The float, entitled "Big Turkey Spectacular", will be colored with the signature green and gold hues often associated with the Jennie-O brand. Taking center stage is a glimmering golden turkey sporting a dapper bowler's hat -- under which is a special Thanksgiving surprise of several baby turkeys. The one-of-a-kind turkey stage features dancing show guys and gals, all of whom will carry feathered fans to bring the turkey's tail feathers to life.
In conjunction with the float's debut, Jennie-O will launch a new social media campaign called the “Turkey Day Spectacular Sweepstakes” that invites people to create their own homemade Thanksgiving Day parade floats for a virtual parade. Participants will have a chance to win a trip to New York to watch the 2021 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade live.
The Jennie-O float is currently scheduled to appear throughout the 2022 Parade.
