Getty Images/Roy Rochlin This year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade was unlike any other, with major coronavirus-related restrictions in place. Usually, spectators turn out in droves to watch the floats and performers drive by — this year, the event was television-only. Coronavirus cases across the country have been spiking, and 2,300 Americans died of the disease the day before Thanksgiving. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The COVID-19 pandemic didn't stop the iconic Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from going forward in New York City on Thursday, but new safety precautions made this year's event unlike any other. Normally, the famous parade draws droves of spectators to 34th Street in Manhattan to watch the floats and performers go by. But this year's parade placed safety first, confining the event to a television-only parade that was "reinvented to safely keep spectators in New York City at home and families nationwide glued to their televisions," according to a statement...

And with special performances by everyone from Goo Goo Dolls and Lauren Alaina to Brett Young and Pentatonix, the parade was also filled with the floats, balloons and musical moments families around the country have come to love every Thanksgiving morning for decades.

    NEW YORK (AP) — The balloons were in the sky and the marching bands took to the streets for the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, but coronavirus restrictions meant it was without the throngs of people usually scrambling for a view. Instead of the usual path through Manhattan, this year's parade was kept to the area in front of Macy's flagship store and aimed at a television audience instead of live crowds. There were some familiar balloon faces, of course, including Snoopy, Ronald McDonald, and SpongeBob SquarePants. But the bigger balloons were missing the numerous handlers who would normally be walking underneath and holding the ropes. This year, they were attached to vehicles that kept them moving and decreased the number of people needed. A number of entertainers performed, including Pentatonix, Keke Palmer and Sofia Carson, and a slew of Broadway shows were represented in taped performances from their casts. Even with the pandemic protocols, the fact that the parade took place made it a rare festivity in a city that has seen most of its major events...
    A slew of spectators watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from home didn’t seem to have much to be grateful for this year. Keyboard critics roasted the NBC broadcast, including various acts, lip-syncing performers and everything from the Rockettes not doing their legendary kicks to some unusual balloons. “The broadcast is absolute garbage. I guess it’s to be expected in 2020,” griped one viewer on Twitter. Some were angered by the coronavirus restrictions that curtailed the annual event, noting their displeasure at seeing performers wearing masks. “These performers waving on these floats as if they have a physical audience is why I have trust issues. Who are you waving to?” one person wondered. When it came to the acts, a rendition from the cast of the Broadway musical “Jagged Little Pill,” based on Alanis Morissette’s 1995 album, appeared to hit all the wrong notes. “I have a lot of thoughts about Jagged Little Pill. None of them are good,” one user wrote. Another person argued that “the ‘Jagged Little Pill’ musical is like adding raisins to potato salad or...

    (CNN)The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade looked a little different this year, and it wasn't just the Covid-19 protocols.The 2020 parade featured a land acknowledgment, traditional rattle song and a blessing honoring people of Native American tribes historically based in the Northeast."Did you catch the performance of the Wampanoag Language Blessing?"

    Al Roker joined his “Today” show colleagues on Thursday to help co-host Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, following his prostate cancer surgery earlier this month. Taking to Instagram, 66-year-old Roker shared a series of snapshots from Thursday’s festivities, as he sat at a socially distanced booth with co-hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb. “Best part of the #macysthanksgivingdayparade is being with these two: @savannahguthrie and @hodakotb,” Roker captioned one shot. In other photos, the beloved weather forecaster is seen wearing a face mask as he takes selfies with floats and giant parade balloons. On Monday, Roker returned to the “Today” show two weeks after undergoing surgery for prostate cancer. He first opened up about the diagnosis earlier this month. “After a routine check-up in September, turns out I have prostate cancer,” Roker said at the time. “And it’s a good news-bad news kind of thing. The good news is we caught it early, not great news is that it’s a little aggressive so I’m going to be taking some time off to take care of this.” During the first hour...

    The determined Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade fans who thought they could avoid the throngs of spectators this year were left bitterly disappointed — and wish they just stayed at home. A small crowd of revelers braved the drizzle and an air-tight ring of NYPD barricades to try to watch the 94th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in person Thursday — but say they made a huge mistake. “It would have been better off watching this on TV,” complained one of the few live spectators, Julia Korzah, 34, who lives in the Herald Square area. “All I can see is the top of the Empire State building,” she griped as she stood behind a metal barricade with her boyfriend at the corner of 34th Street and Eighth Avenue. Last year, more than 3.5 million eager parade-watchers lined the 2.5-mile route from the Upper West Side to Herald Square. But to keep people safe amid the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s parade was a deeply compressed made-for-TV live event — stretching just one block, in front of the iconic department store’s Herald Square headquarters....

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Like all things 2020, Thanksgiving looks a lot different this year. But Macy’s still wants to bring the magic of the season alive, just in a safer way. Behind barriers in Herald Square, a glimpse of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats getting into position makes this finally feel like the holidays. “Had a lot of difficulties, so felt like it was important for us to bring back a sense of normalcy to ensure that we are there for everyone Thanksgiving morning,” Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade Executive Producer Susan Tercero told CBS2. This year, Macy’s is having what it calls a reimagined celebration — still with balloons and performances, but without the in-person crowds for what’s become a TV-only event. “To provide a little bit of fun, a little bit of entertainment and some lightness to some heavy times,” Tercero said.

    So many annual traditions have been scuttled this year in the face of the pandemic. But one great New York holiday event is going forward — albeit with major changes. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is taking place on the streets of Manhattan Thursday morning, as scheduled. But it is a television-only production. Spectators are not being permitted on the modified route. Of course, because it’s 2020, the forecast is calling for rain throughout the event. But hey, at approximately 11:55 a.m. ET, Santa Claus will make his way down 34th street to say hello to us all before begins his work in earnest. (Dr. Anthony Fauci told USA Today that Santa is, fortunately, immune from Covid-19.) And in this crazy year, that wonderful bit of holiday normalcy is all we can ask for. The parade began at 9:00 a.m. ET, and will run until noon. Watch above, via Verizon. Have a tip we should know? [email protected]

Also, this year, high school and college marching bands will be absent.  In partnership with the city, Macy’s promised to deliver a safe 94th Thanksgiving Day Parade. This included figuring out which roads to block to prevent people from entering the parade area.  Program lineups involving musical performances, balloons, floats and an appearance by Santa Claus will not change.  This year, late night...

Jackson is one of the stars of “Ain’t Too Proud — The Life and Times of The Temptations” and he reunited with castmates for the first time since theaters shuttered to prepare for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday. “I was most happy with just seeing all my old friends I haven’t seen in months, some who flew in specifically for the show to do this,” he said. “It was different, but it was still great to do.” The pandemic, which shut down theaters in March, may have upended most traditions this holiday season, but the annual New York City parade will march on with balloons, dancers, floats, Broadway shows and Santa — albeit heavily edited for safety. “Traditions like this are comforting and they’re uplifting,” said Susan Tercero, executive producer of the parade. “New York has always been a tough city.

    Getty 93rd Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 28, 2019 in New York City. Is Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day parade canceled this year? No.  However, it will look a little different this year. While there will be no parade down Broadway, there will still be floats and giant balloons towed by trucks as opposed to handlers. Macy’s and NBC tell Variety that the overall number of participants has been reduced by 88%. Some performances will be taped while others will be live. The event will be broadcast on NBC from 9 a.m. ET – 12 p.m. ET. In an email to Newsday, Sgt. Edward Riley, a spokesman for NYPD, shared, “This year’s Macy Thanksgiving Day Parade is not open to spectators. The bulk of the program will be pretaped with no audience. Officers will be present in areas where filming will occur to prevent large groups from gathering.” The performances that will be live include the all-female samba drum line Danza Fiesta, representing the National Puerto Rican Day Parade. There will also be performances by Pan in...
    They’re not quitting this tradition cold turkey.

    The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be held in 2020, but in a changed capacity that will reflect the ongoing (and quickly spiking) COVID-19 pandemic. The better news is that for the 20th consecutive year, Pikachu is going to be there. And Pikachu is up to something. On Thursday, Nov. 26, the giant Pikachu balloon will once again float among the skyscrapers of Manhattan. That inflated Pokémon will be complemented by “a troupe of dancing Pikachu [that] will deliver an electrifying performance,” The Pokémon Company said in a news release Monday. Furthermore, The Pokémon Company said, “Pokémon fans will want to tune in to find out why they’re making a special appearance this year.” That’s either an exciting or ominous-sounding tease, but will likely be worth tuning in for. Will Pikachu announce first details on a Detective Pikachu sequel? Will Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Pikachu be added to Pokémon Go as a special costume? Will Pikachu release a noxious gas in New York City to hypnotize the city’s populace in an attempt to take over the world? Only The...

    (CBS DETROIT) – Detroit’s annual Thanksgiving Day will go virtual this year instead of having its usual live performance in downtown next week, according to the Detroit Free Press. Organizers planned to have roughly 800 participants and 22 floats for the live parade, but Detroit’s Chief Public Health Officer Denise Fair said this would violate the state’s current public health restrictions on outdoor gatherings of more than 25 people. The new restrictions are in place due to the rising number of coronavirus cases across Michigan. According to the Free Press, the parade’s lead organizer believed the parade could still happen under the new restrictions as long as no spectators gather to watch, parade participants wore masks and were stretched over 1 1/4 miles. Parade organizer Tony Michaels said during an interview Thursday, viewers on Thanksgiving morning could enjoy a “virtual parade” but offered no further details.

"It was this great relief," Roker described the feeling of finishing the operation. "For a first start, this is terrific news. I'm going to be up for — and a lot of people who live with cancer — up for lifelong testing to make sure this doesn't come back." The weatherman, 66, had his prostate and some surrounding tissue and lymph nodes removed by surgeon Dr. Vincent Laudone.

Roker said his recovery is going well and is already back to walking his five-mile loop around Central Park.  "I feel good," Roker said. "The technology has gotten...
