The iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will not be live this year because of coronavirus risks — instead, viewers will be able to “feel the spirit and joy of that day” on television and online, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday.
“One of the most beloved events every year is the Thanksgiving Day Parade. I always want to express my appreciation to everyone at Macy’s. They are extraordinarily civically-minded. … We saw what they did on July 4 with an amazing fireworks display,” de Blasio said at a press conference.
“They’re gonna do the same thing again with the Thanksgiving Parade. It will not be the same parade we’re used to. It will be a different kind of event. They’re reinventing the event for this moment in history,” he said.
