Macy’s Still Planning On Holding Thanksgiving Day Parade This Year
Most everything in 2020 has been canceled or postponed, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but one major event is still planning on happening this November.
According to WGRZ, Macy's is still planning on holding its annual Thanksgiving Day Parade, despite COVID-19 concerns.
The parade would take place on November 26th.
The company cited the fact that they had a safe and reimagined firework production for the 4th of July. This could mean they will be able to do the same to kick off the holiday season.
Macy's said in a statement:
"It is our intention to similarly reimagine Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this November."
It still remains to be seen what New York State will say about it if the parade will indeed go on -- indoor movie theaters and amusement parks have still yet to reopen in the state.
The Thanksgiving Day Parade is always the official kickoff of the holiday season and I'd be lying if I said I didn't watch at least some of it every year.
I'm not sure what changes they will have if it indeed is held, but it should be interesting to see.
