Stamps Feature Thanksgiving Parade

The United States Postal Service has issued a commemorative set of stamps celebrating Thanksgiving Day parades and prominently featuring a marching band.

Four stamp designs—which create a continuous scene when viewed in a strip side-by-side—illustrate the elements commonly found in a Thanksgiving Day parade, including marching bands, colorful floats, large balloons and crowds of delighted onlookers. Paul Rogers of Pasadena, Calif., designed the artwork. The stamp dedication ceremony was held Sept. 9 at Macy’s Herald Square in New York.
