Macy's Thanksgiving Parade Is On For 2020 But Will Look Different
But.....as I am sure you are expecting to hear....the celebration won't be exactly what we have experienced in year's past. The only thing is that no one knows exactly what to expect because those in charge of the event are still working out the details.
“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,” said a statement on the event’s website. “Following our successful, safe and innovative production of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks, it is our intention to similarly re-imagine Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this November. Stay tuned for more details later this fall.”
But when asked to describe the event, here is what New York Mayor Bill de Blasio had to say:
“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,” de Blasio added. “But the important thing is, the traditions will be kept in some way.”
