History with the Macy's Parade
Reddi-Wip made their Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade debut in 2000, to help celebrate their 50th anniversary, with a float titled "Simple Simon's Fair". It featured an animated Merry-Go-Round and Ferris Wheel, alongside a massive 8-foot pumpkin pie at the front, which is where the performer stood during the Parade. The float once again appeared in 2001, this time, a birthday candle of the number 75 was placed on the float, to help celebrate the 75th Macy's Parade. It was retired that same year and was later recycled onto the Fisher-Price float in 2004. The Pie 5 sign is now used as a decoration at the parade studio
