Here is a video of a May Day Parade , that was held in 1974 . I just thought that I'd post it here . The opening remarks start three minutes in , and the parade itself begins at around nineteen minutes in . A key difference I noticed between Soviet parades , such as this , and American , such as the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade , is that the former focuses more on the synchronized movement of people , rather than on floats , and balloons . Also I noticed the prominent inclusion of iconic images of figures , past and present .
