Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade Moving Forward This Year with Changes
- The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade is going to look a little different this year due to the pandemic.
- New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this week that the parade may get the same treatment as the city’s 4th of July fireworks show; the fireworks were held in five minute increments over several days to prevent huge crowds from gathering.
- de Blasio said “I think some of the parade is going to be virtual, maybe some small, in-person, spread-out pieces. It’s not going to look at all, of course, like what we’re used to, but the important thing is that the traditions will be kept in some way.”
