Solo Stove Makes Its Debut in the 97th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®
October 12, 2023
The Popular Outdoor Lifestyle Brand Joins the Beloved Holiday Spectacle with New “Igniting Memories” Float
GRAPEVINE, TX & NEW YORK, NY – (October 12, 2023) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Solo Stove, a home and outdoor lifestyle brand within Solo Brands (NYSE: DTC), is thrilled to announce its participation in the 97th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® on November 23, 2023. On Thanksgiving morning, Solo Stove will warm the hearts of live spectators and viewers across the country with its “Igniting Memories” float, depicting a beautiful outdoor campfire scene.
Paying homage to the fireside tradition, the scene is inspired by an idyllic outdoor site, built for creating cherished family memories. The centerpiece float scene features the Solo Stove Bonfire, the world’s most popular smokeless fire pit, and creates a vision of hanging around the campfire—the perfect place to roast s’mores and spend time reconnecting to what matters most. The float’s RV was custom built by the artisans at Macy’s Studios to fit on top of the float wheels, appearing as though it has been towed right up to the campsite.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on the first ever Solo Stove float, designed to inspire people everywhere to gather with friends and family,” commented John Merris, President & CEO of Solo Stove. “Solo Stove loves bringing people together to reconnect around a great fire and we’re excited to bring exactly that to a national audience during a season of gratitude and gathering.”
“The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and Solo Stove are synonymous with memories and togetherness,” said Jordan Dabby, producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “This November, Parade fans across the country will feel the warmth and coziness emanating from this beautiful float.”
Solo Stove recently launched a social media sweepstakes on Facebook, Instagram, X, and Tiktok, encouraging fans to join the fun by entering to win a trip to New York City and attend the 2023 Parade. The sweepstakes is live until October 22, 2023. To learn more, please visit https://www.solostove.com.
