NEW YORK, NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 26: A view of the Tom the Turkey float at the 94th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade® on November 26, 2020 in New York City. The World-Famous Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade® kicks off the holiday season for millions of television viewers watching safely at home.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has announced that the 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will allow the public to watch the parade in person.

Macy’s will be downsizing the amount of participants including performers, balloon handlers, etc., to about 1,600. Last year the parade was held virtually with no spectators due to the pandemic.

“We are thrilled to welcome back in its full form the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, a world-renowned celebration that ushers in the magic of being in New York City during the holiday season,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio in a press release. “We applaud Macy’s work to creatively continue this beloved tradition last year and look forward to welcoming back Parade watchers to experience it safely, live and in person this November.”

This year all volunteers and staff are required to be vaccinated and wear a face covering. Details about the entry guidelines and restrictions for the public will be released in November.
