The parade was 6 miles long and included floats, Macy's employees dressed as clowns, cowboys, and sword-wielding knights, and animals from Central Park Zoo. Santa Claus, of course, brought up the rear - opening the Christmas shopping season for Macy's.

President Roosevelt approved of all of them and most them were implemented during his terms as President. She served until his death in 1945.

1966 - At the age of 58 years old, Julius was alive when on July 1st, Medicare became available after President Johnson signed into law the Medicare Act in 1965. President Truman had received the first Medicare card since he had been the first to propose national healthcare law. insurance.

1986 - In the year of Julius Roberts's passing, on January 28th, the space shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after launch. All seven crew members died.
