History with the Macy's Parade

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, Kay Hire, alongside fellow former NASA astronaut Dr. Janet Kavandi, were selected to appear in the 2019 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. During this appearance, the two would hitch a ride on the newly-refurbished Snoopy's Doghouse float, joining a costumed character variant of Charlie Brown.
