The annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade had to make some adjustments this year as the coronavirus cases continue to rapidly rise in the United States, but fret not, the show will still include all usual decorated floats, helium-filled balloons and star-studded performances.
Unlike other years, the parade marching the usual two-and-a-half-mile in New York City. Instead, it has shorted its route and will only be held (without an audience) in front of Macy’s flagship store on 34th Street for the national television special.
Lauren Alaina, Jimmie Allen and Noah Cyrus, Ally Brooke, Sofia Carson, CNCO, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, Karol G, Tori Kelly, Patti LaBelle, Ella Mai, Leslie Odom Jr., Keke Palmer, Dolly Parton, Pentatonix, Bebe Rexha, Jordin Sparks, Sebastián Yatra, Brett Young and more are all scheduled to participate in the event.
The casts of Hamilton, Mean Girls, Jagged Little Pill, and Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations will also perform.
Catch the broadcast, hosted by Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Craig Melvin and Al Roker, at 9 a.m. ET on NBC. Viewers can also watch on NBC.com with your cable provider and on Verizon’s Youtube channel.
