Yes, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Will Happen This Year, but It Will Look a Little Different
It's hard to think about Thanksgiving without the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade — the floats, marching bands, popular performers, Broadway performances, and, of course, that appearance by Santa. But with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic canceling most major public events and health and safety becoming a top priority, will the parade go on this year? The answer is yes — but it's bound to look different. So how exactly will the popular turkey day parade look? Similarly, expect smaller in-person segments and some other virtual events spread out, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said recently during a press conference when asked about the event. "I think everything is going to be different is the simple answer. Some are going to be virtual, there might be some small in-person pieces, spread out pieces, it's not going to look at all, of course, like how we are used to. But the important thing is, the traditions will be kept in some way," de Blasio said.
