The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will be dramatically scaled back.

...snip...

This year, the parade won’t go down the normal 2.5 mile route from the Upper West Side. Instead, performances will contained in a small area in Herald Square for TV cameras only – there will be no live spectators.

Something else that won’t be happening: The traditional balloon inflation the night before, near the American Museum of Natural History.

Among the other changes:
* About 75% fewer participants.
* The event will instead be stretched out over two days
* No one under the age of 18 will be allowed to take part, meaning no regional high school or college marching bands

4. Sad, but no surprise

I really wouldn't expect the parade to go on at all.

5. Philly already cancelled its Thanksgiving parade (oldest in the nation)

along with every other parade and/or large event scheduled through the end of February, and did so way back in mid-July. But the local ABC network that usually broadcasts it, will be doing a television "celebration" - https://6abc.com/6abc-thanksgiving-parade-channel-6-philadelphia-2020/6316935/

This also means no Mummers Parade on New Years Day 2021.

We are NOT going to have a repeat of 1918 here in THIS city!
