  1. In 1945 the parade returned and took the route that it still follows to the present day. IN addition, it was the first year the parade was actually televised! Now more people across the country could see the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade! By the 1950s the televised parade had really hooked America and become a Thanksgiving Day tradition.
