Take Me Out To The Macy's Day Parade To See The Cracker Jack MLB Float 

By Barry Janoff

October 16, 2014: Back in 1908, when the song "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" was authored by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer, the Cracker Jack product was just 12 years old (first produced for mass consumption in 1896) and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade would not hit the streets of New York for 16 years (1924).

In 2014, a space-time continuum will bring all three together.

Cracker Jack, a division of PepsiCo's Frito-Lay North America, said that this November the brand would make its first appearance in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with a MLB-themed float that "builds on the tradition of Cracker Jack snacks and family experiences at the ballpark."

PepsiCo also said that the float also marks the first appearance by any of its brands in the iconic and nationally televised parade.

The Macy's Parade float, titled "At the Ball Game," will be the culmination of Cracker Jack's summer-long campaign, "The Surprise Inside Project," an extension of the caramel-coated popcorn and peanuts product's famous boast of having a "toy surprise" in each box.

The campaign, according to PepsiCo, "encouraged parents around the country to bring small, but meaningful surprises for their families". Over the last few months, the brand said it has helped "hundreds of families pull off a variety of small surprises — from the unexpected at-home spa day to a pop-up picnic in the park to a movie night with loved ones."

The Cracker Jack float also builds on the brand's partnerships with both Macy's and MLB. Earlier this year, Cracker Jack was a partner for the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks, and boxes of Cracker Jacks included team-specific stickers for the first time in more than 20 years.

"With our first-ever Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade float, we really wanted to bring all of our Cracker Jack themes to life — the tradition of baseball, the spirit of surprise and the essence of Americana, but with a fresh, unexpected twist that was relevant for audiences today," Ram Krishnan, svp-marketing for Frito-Lay North America, said in a statement. "We can't wait to see reactions on Thanksgiving Day, and hope our float continues to remind fans everywhere that even the smallest surprises can make a big impact when it comes to family fun."

Among its highlights, the 36-foot long, three-story tall float will include live cameras and a large LED screen providing live shots of the Parade; infield, outfield and bleacher seats adorned with giant sculptures; and a fully operational scoreboard.

Fireworks will be shot from the float as it arrives in Herald Square, where a live performance will take place.

There was no word if parade-goers would be encouraged to sing the classic "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" song, which includes the words, "Take me out to the ball game/Take me out with the crowd. Just buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack/I don't care if I never get back."

The 88th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade airs nationwide Nov. 27 on NBC.
