Traditional Macy's parade deflated, but not giving in to the pandemic



One of the oldest department store chains in the U.S. planned the Thanksgiving procession with the coronavirus in mind.

Macy's has been organizing its own Thanksgiving parade since 1924. This magnificent procession is considered an integral part of the holiday. Traditionally, it has live broadcast in full on television. Each year, musicians and celebrities take part in the parade. The audience can watch the passing of themed platforms and flying inflatable figures and enjoy numerous musical, dancing, and acrobatic performances.

The parade has never been canceled during its 96-year history, except for three years during World War II, attracting millions of spectators to New York City streets. The parade holds in 2020, but the pandemic has made significant adjustments in this process. The organizers had to take into account the new realities of the past when mass meetings were banned. 

As a result, Macy's Thanksgiving parade becomes a television show, without crowds, but with traditional entertainment, inflatable figures, and performances. It includes the best Broadway performers, marching music and dance groups, plenty of joy, and bright moving platforms. 

Now there are many "coronavirus" restrictions. The parade route will occupy only one block, not the traditional couple miles. Instead of 8,000 people involved in a parade in an ordinary year, in 2020, the organization laid on the shoulders of 960 workers.  The number of giant inflatable figures was reduced from 16, as last year, to 12, and the number of platforms decreased from 26 to 18.

School bands will not take part in the parade, and the number of people who drive the inflatable figures will decrease from 2000 to about 130 - the rest will be replaced by trucks. Strict rules have been introduced that allow participants to provide regular health checks and temperature measurements. Just as during the preparation process and during the parade itself, social distancing norms are strictly observed. 

The parade was recorded for display for three days. The organizers warn those wishing to see the spectacle in person that on November 26, Thanksgiving, there is no need to come to the parade, especially since there will be absolutely nothing to see. The broadcast consists of pre-recorded material.
