1984 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Donald Duck Balloon
Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade 1984
Donald Duck Balloon taken out of retirement in honor of Donald's 50th Birthday
This picture was in a family photo album, so with the aid of Google, I was able to uncover the story of when and why Donald was flying over New York. This was 1984, 25 years ago when Donald was turning 50 ( and this year now is his 75th).
If this was 1984, how would I find out this information? Certainly not in 2 seconds like it did on the internet!
