LET'S HAVE A PARADE….. in a whole new way!!! Our favorite time in New York City is during the holiday season. It has just been announced that the legendary MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET will still be happening this year. We are talking about the 2020 edition of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. However due to the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the parade is going to be a little different vs. what we've previously known every year.

According to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, the annual parade that kicks off the start of the holiday season will be re-imagined for 2020. Some parts of the parade will march down the streets of New York, several acts will be performed virtually, and more…. all still keeping up with the tradition every year. It's expecting to be done almost in the same style as this year's edition of the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular last month.

No official confirmation has been said on what will this year's edition be like consisting of participants from Celebrities, to Marching Band's, and of course with the Broadway acts. Stay tuned for announcements.

At the same time, talks are also being made to discuss plans with the annual live lighting of the world famous Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.

Because both the Macy's Parade and Christmas in Rockefeller Center are popular outdoor tourist events, safety precautions are underway for people to social distant and also the prevention of large crowds that could fuel another coronavirus outbreak.

The 2020 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is set for November 26th, 2020 on both NBC and CBS.

Christmas in Rockefeller Center airs 1 week later after the parade (the beginning of December) on NBC.
