In another reminder of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade continues in New York, but without the crowds and hundreds of volunteers that cause it to do so every year

However, the parade still airs in living rooms across the country as you zoom over turkey and pumpkin pie with grandma and grandpa (hopefully they’ve figured out how to use zoom by now)

The 94 Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade will go back on its typical 2.5 mile route to avoid large crowds It will travel from Central Park West to Herald Square

Instead of having 80-100 handlers, some balloons will be fitted with a “specially mounted anchor strap made from five specialty vehicles,” according to Macy’s and NBC

Since it was filmed in segments, parades, performances and commentary can only be viewed on TV and online

This year’s parade will air starting at 9 a.m.- noon ET, Thursday, Nov. 26, on NBC and Telemundo
