The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be mostly virtual this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced in September it will “Not be a live parade but something that will really give us that warmth and that great feeling we have on Thanksgiving Day.”
This year’s parade will be staged over two days, with the number of participants reduced by nearly 75 percent.
“All participants will be appropriately socially distanced during performances and be required to wear face coverings and additional personal protective equipment depending on their role.”
The Today show announced performers which include Dolly Parton, Lauren Alaina, Jimmie Allen and Brett Young!
