Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but…

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the latest big New York City holiday event to be canceled due to COVID-19 concerns. They are in the company of the Rockettes’ Radio City Christmas Spectacular which has also been called off making this the first time in almost 90 years that the Rockettes will not take the stage at Radio City Music Hall.

While the parade has been formally canceled, New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio, did state that “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 and you will be able to feel the spirit and the joy of that day on television, online, not a live parade but something that will really give us that warmth and that great feeling we have on Thanksgiving Day.”

This is what Macy’s had to say about the parade’s cancellation. “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,” the statement read. “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. Stay tuned for more details later this fall.”

So while it seems we might be missing out on the traditional Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, t is definitely something in the works to give us those warm Thanksgiving Day feels so we do have that to be thankful for this turkey day.🦃
