The Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Will be Virtual This Year


  • The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be held virtually this year because of the pandemic.
  • New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the news Monday.
  • A live parade will happen too, but there will also be a re-imagined parade created to watch on television and online. 
  • The TV parade will be filmed over a two-day period, and will have about 25 percent of the usual participants.
  • It won't follow the usual 2.5 mile route, but will instead stay on the streets surrounding Herald Square. 
  • All participants will have to wear masks and observe social distancing.
