The 94 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day annual parade may not have been canceled by the coronavirus, but there are some radical changes to help keep the social environment -Distance mandates for 2020 Biggest change: Bash will be tailored solely to the television audience

“Thanksgiving looks very different to a lot of people, but one thing you can count on is you see balloons, see floats, see Santa,” said Susan Tercero, executive producer on Parade, the said Post

As a service for night owls, we’ve put together a complete guide to how the Corona time ceremony works

This year’s parade will air on NBC on November 26 from 9 am to noon East

In addition to the NBC broadcast, viewers can watch a livestream of the celebration on YouTubecom / Verizon through Verizon’s Twitter account and other Verizon Media properties. Online coverage will be hosted by Mario Lopez

To reduce the number of Gobble Day gawkers (which totaled 3 million at previous events), the parade will not travel the traditional 2½-mile route through town. Instead, the event will take place around Herald Square in Manhattan, where the Macy’s flagship department store is located, even with the smaller parade route, city officials are preventing New Yorkers from gathering on 34th Street to watch the celebrations live, Today reported

The parade itself will be smaller as well, as organizers cut the attendance by a whopping 88%, Variety reported. Those attending will only be from New York City and will wear masks and keep social distance at all times

“Safety is our number. I am not a priority, and we cannot do this without the real support and guidance of the people of New York and state,” Tercero said of the Macy’s makeover

Fans shouldn’t feel too emptied In keeping with tradition, Macy’s will introduce two new balloons: the title character of “Boss Baby” and the Red Titan from the popular YouTube series “Ryan’s World” “These are used by tractor units instead of the 100 people anchored who normally serve each balloon

As in previous years, the Big Apple’s music theater scene will be well represented in the Macy’s Parade, with pre-made performances from the casts of “Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of Temptation”, “Hamilton” ” Jagged Little Pill “and” Mean Girls “We hope that Broadway, which was financially decimated during the lockdown, will end up by 30 May 2021 will remain closed, the focus will be on

There will also be musical performances by Patti LaBelle, Keke Palmer, Dolly Parton, Jordin Sparks, the Radio City Rockettes, and dozens of others
In the meantime, the high school and college bands invited to this year’s event will perform in 2021 instead, with the NYPD Police Band, West Point Band, FDNY Bagpipe Band and other local professional marching bands taking their places

This year’s Turkey Day Parade will also feature artists from several New York parades that have been canceled due to the pandemic, including St Patrick’s Day Parade, West Indian Day Parade, Puerto Rican Day Parade, Pride Parade, Mermaid Parade, and other T-Day is all about leftovers, right?

And if that wasn’t enough reason to be grateful this year, Santa Claus will close the show again

The three-hour broadcast will be hosted by NBC’s “Today” anchors Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, and of course, Al Roker, who recently returned to the show after having had prostate cancer surgery on Jimmy Fallon and The Roots are set to open the show

“I think in a year where we’ve had a lot of disappointments, this year’s parade should give everyone a little breath and a little lightness and ease for the holiday season,” Tercero told The Post
