The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will go on as scheduled this year…
But with a few notable changes.
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.
“I think some of the parade is going to be virtual, maybe some small, in-person, spread-out pieces.” de Blasio said. “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.”
