Despite the pandemic the Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will still go on. You won’t see the typical 2.5 mile route or the 3.5 million spectators. Instead, the cavalcade of favorites will unfold around Herald Square, near the flagship department store. Think of it more as a runway, with the parade lineup modeling for the cameras. Balloon displays won’t be pulled by human handlers, but rather anchored by specially designed vehicles. You’ll also see pre-taped productions of “Hamilton,” “Ain’t Too Proud,” “Mean Girls,” & “Jagged Little Pill.” There will be performances by Pentatonix, Dolly Parton, Patti Labelle and more. There will be people who attend the parade in person they will be be socially distanced and wearing masks.
