Apollo 11 ticker tape parade, New York, August 1969. Footage of the Apollo 11 motorcade turning from Wall Street onto Broadway and then passing down East 42nd Street in New York, USA, on 13 August 1969. NASA astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Mike Collins were the crew of the historic Apollo 11 mission, achieving the first landing by humans on the Moon on 20 July 1969. This was the first parade held to honour the Apollo 11 astronauts, with an estimated 4 million people lining the streets. This was followed by ticker tape parades in Chicago and Los Angeles later that day, and then a State Banquet in Los Angeles and the presentation of the Presidential Medal of Freedom to the astronauts. Similar scenes occurred over the following months in other US cities and across the world as people turned out to see the men who had been to the Moon.
