Local History Shines Bright for the Holidays

For generations of Seattle shoppers, Macy's Holiday Star is a guiding light during the holiday season. The famous 161-foot high, 3,600-bulb star is officially lit each year at the conclusion of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, at the same time as the lighting of the Westlake holiday tree. The iconic star was created by local display designer Bob James in 1957, when the store was known as the Bon Marche, and has been lit every year since (except during a power brownout in 1973).
