Save the date!
On November 26th, the 94th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will air from
9 am to noon, all time zones, on NBC-TV.
Due to COVID19, this will not be the typical crowd-filled, two-and-a-half-mile route starting at West 77th Street. The balloons will not be flown by handlers; they will be driven by utility vehicles and joined by floats gliding just one city block down 34th Street, near the flagship department store, and without an audience. Marching bands will not be included, but the casts of four currently shuttered Broadway shows will perform instead.
Astronaut Snoopy will return, continuing his record as the longest-running balloon character.
