It’s officially Thanksgiving and you know what that means… The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade is happening. Although, it will look quite different this year…
This year, instead of the usual massive parade that draws thousands of people to New York City, it will be held virtually for the entire nation to watch from home.
Due to the pandemic, Macy’s partnered with the City of New York to safely produce this year’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
“While it will may look different in execution, we invite everyone to tune in and experience our incredible celebration on television featuring our signature character balloons, dazzling animated floats, whimsical clowns, world-class performances, and of course the arrival of Santa Claus, who will once again herald the start of the holiday season,”Susan Tercero, the executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, in a statement.
I think the burning question we all have is, will there be balloons in the Thanksgiving Parade this year?
And guess what? There will be!
According to CNN, there will be signature balloons such as Ronald McDonald and Sinclair’s Dino, floats and performances, though there will be far fewer participants this year.
The finale is intact also; Santa Claus’s appearance will be captured on NBC’s national television special. Santa will arrive in front of Macy’s famed flagship store on 34th Street to kick off the holiday season as is tradition.
How To Watch The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade 2020
This year’s event is going to be staged as a TV-only event in 2020.
NBC will air the 2020 parade from 9 a.m. to noon in all time zones Thursday.
Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker will host the event.
So, let’s all stay safe at home, watch the Thanksgiving Parade and try to have a little bit of any normalcy we can.
Stay safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
