The show will go on, however the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is going to look a little different this year, due to... you guessed it... the pandemic.
New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this week that the parade may look a lot like 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 together.
"I think some of the parade is going to be virtual, maybe some small, in-person, spread-out pieces," de Blasio said at a press conference on Thursday. "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."

Macy's also released an announcement this week on its website:
"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. Following our successful, safe and innovative production of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks®, it is our intention to similarly reimagine Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this November."
