Dance of the Nutcracker & Sugarplum Fairy in front of store windows
With bold colors and a festive spirit, Paul Olszewski and the Macy's design team crafts a collection of windows juxtaposing the most iconic elements of Macy's with recognizable hallmarks of the holiday season. Themed after "The Magic of Christmas" and carrying traces of "Make-a-Wish" (both the theme and the charitable organization), tourists and townies alike are attracted to the spectacular displays that make New York a bit merrier this time of year.

The miniature Statue of Liberty and Ironworkers statue in the background add a familiar touch...
Scenic snapshot of Macy's signature Thanksgiving Day parade
One of the more memorable occasions, the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade has been an annual event since 1924. A festive Marionette gracefully guides a float in this window. Amazing, how familiar floats resurface year to year, with some new faces mixed in!
