History with the Macy's Parade
In 1993, Wendy's debuted a float in the Macy's Parade titled "Home for the Holidays". It featured a small winter cabin at the rear of the float, all decked out for Christmas. In the middle of the float, a giant Christmas tree stood, serving as the centerpiece of the float. It also featured a streetlight at the front, alongside snow piling high on the float. This float was retired after 1994, after only making two appearances.
