The first round of performers and celeb guests have been announced for the 2020 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
The iconic parade is still happening later this month on Thursday, November 26th, but things are going to be a lot different because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Only a few select Broadway shows will be performing this year, however, the performances will be recorded ahead of time and will air during the show.
Everyone involved in the performances will be tested COVID and will be required to wear masks while on the set, but singers will be allowed to remove their masks in order to perform, The New York Times reports.
Also, instead of the two and a half mile-long route, the parade will march for just one city block down 34th Street in New York City and will do so without a crowd.
Similarly, the character balloons will not be flown with handlers, but will instead be pulled along by special vehicles.
The 2020 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be available on both NBC’s TV channel and website.
