This year has been very… different. Yes, there are a ton of other words that could fit there, but I’ll just go with different.

We all could use a little bit of normalcy and tradition this year! It looks like we will have that with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

I was actually born on Thanksgiving and although it doesn’t fall on Thanksgiving every year, that is still when I like to celebrate my birthday.

We have all of the best food on Thanksgiving Day and I can celebrate by watching a parade that has been a tradition longer than I have even been alive.


Even my kids get excited, especially when they get to see their favorite KPop stars! In fact, the one above is one of my daughter’s favorites!


I honestly thought with the way that everything has been going that the parade would be canceled. Well, it appears I was wrong and the show will go on! However, there will be some changes.


For more than 90 years, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has kicked off the holiday season with its signature entertainment spectacle, making it one of the world’s most beloved events. Following our successful, safe, and innovative, production of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks, it is our intention to similarly reimagine Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this November.

the company’s website reads

Mayor Bill de Blasio seems to think it will all be different than previous years. He mentioned that some of it will be virtual, so that’s very different. He also said some may be small in-person pieces, but the tradition of the parade will still happen.


Some is 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.
