WATCH: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2020

Macy’s 2020 Thanksgiving Day parade marched on with a twist this year.

The usual route — 2.5 miles through crowded Manhattan — has been scrapped in favor of a one-block stretch of 34th Street in front of the retailer’s flagship Manhattan store.

Many performances have been pre-recorded, and most of the parade’s performers will be locally based, so as to cut down on travel.
