6:15 pm
the macy's thanksgiving day parade and the lighting new yorkers and the entire country for generations. the parade has certainly evolved over the years. it started way back in the roaring 20's 1924 to be exact. the iconic department store celebrating the expansion of their flagship store in manhattan. here's a fun fact. 97 years ago it was billed as a christmas parade, one for thanksgiving. the parade route was originally 6 miles long from harlem to herald square besides santa claus. the star attractions back then were actually animals on long from the central park zoo. but the animals were overwhelmed by the huge crowd. too often tired on the long march to animals lost their star billing in just a few years. in 1927 the parade would never be the same. the first giant helium-filled balloons rose above the captivated crowd characters that were once super recognizable come and
6:16 pm
gone of all of them felix the cat, the most enduring balloon. but new additions continue really cracked the parade lineup reflecting the changing times and pop culture of the day. today we take for granted the macy's thanksgiving day parade can be watched by millions of americans coast to coast. but for the first 2 decades you only saw if you went in person. in fact, the first broadcast of the macy's thanksgiving day parade wasn't even on television. >> was on the radio in maybe you could watch it on the radio, but he sure could hears the first national broadcast on television took it to a whole new level. 1946 soon. the entire nation getting to see the parade right from their living rooms while prepping for turkey dinner along the way. the show has always had challenges and always indoor. high winds remain the most pressing issue on parade day. moment coming
6:17 pm
in 1997 a 40 mile an hour wind gusts caused the balloon to knock over a lamppost on central park west. it injured 4 people. >> the parade was actually canceled 3 times back in 1940 to 1943 1944 due to world war 2. >> twenty-twenty saw the macy's thanksgiving day parade confront a worldwide pandemic. but the tradition carried on. instead of thousands of parade watchers jammed shoulder to shoulder on city sidewalks. there were no crowds macy's produce the parade for a television audience using a closed set. of course, this year. the macy's thanksgiving day parade is back in a big way. great has seen and march so much history and its years this year will add to that as americans celebrate a holiday much closer to normal with an iconic american tradition continuing to herald in the holiday season. >> well, that was a john miller reporting for us
6:18 pm
tonight. i love this little much every thanksgiving i get up to watch the parade. yeah. it's a tradition to do it. i know. at just one thing that really want to do when i was a kid growing up in detroit. my dad used to take us to the parade but i would come home and finish watching this. all right. and it's just part of my tradition. i just love you know, aren't been there i was their second, 3rd grade summer around the time it gets really cold. you've got to get out there really eyes were filled up in these big balloons. yeah. our favorite characters and of course, santa claus comes, that's when everybody gets really excited when it brings out the child in all of get a hot chocolate warm to survive all temperatures out there, right. cold that part of the around the bay area. we have to deal with a little patchy frost this morning. so not as cool but. >> little cold out there tonight and you're going to see those clear skies those offshore winds again. and that means really that dry air. and so the temperatures are going to fall off again around the bay area highs today turned
6:19 pm
out to be a very, very nice day. 62 degrees. slightly above the average in san francisco, 64 in oakland, a warm 69 in san jose 63 degrees and a little more 61 in concord and 64 degrees in santa rosa high pressure just holding on. you can see that front out there just kind of help in a row that ridge just a little bit. but that ridge just too strong. in fact, that front's going to kind of roll into that start to fall apart and that ridge is going to start to build back in again for tomorrow. and the weekend. so it looks like at some nice weather head winds still a bit offshore in spots. so calm in sonoma light. offshore winds now in the napa valley and in the san francisco throughout the night tonight. i think we're going to see those offshore winds continuing as we head through the night so they can keep your skies mostly clear with the exception of a few high clouds. that will be interesting. i think by tomorrow afternoon we may begin to see a little switch you see right there. you're start to turn a little bit of a sea breeze. developing late today. so that will probably knock down the temperatures, maybe a degree or 2. not much. it's still going to be a gorgeous day out there with
6:20 pm
some nice weather. so mostly clear tonight, couple patches of frost real possibility. well, inland specially in the north bay. then tomorrow here comes that sunshine again in a few high clouds and then it will remain dry. looks like that will continue in the weekend here's the pattern. high pressure sitting off the coastline that rtdge just too strong. that front coming through and just fall apart. so we're going to stay dry now. it looks like for the foreseeable future. at least maybe the next 7, maybe 10 days or so as high pressure just going go through a series of kind of rebuilding after weakening after some of these fronts come through. so you see a lot of temperatures like this plan on highs again tomorrow in the 60's and low 70's all around the bay area. >> lawrence, thanks a lot. san francisco spca is window is back on display at macy's in union square instead of the dogs and cats actually being there, though. you can see here it switched to videos of the animals this year. it is, of course, an improvement from last year when they weren't on display at all because the pandemic. >> coming up, female leaders in the bay sitting down with
