What has changed
Messi has partnered with New York City in an effort to make this year’s parade safer, without seeing a spectacle.
“To avoid gathering large crowds of spectators along our traditional 2.5-mile route in New York City, we shortened the route to focus solely on the final segment of our annual march, a representative for the company,” Have given.. “On Thanksgiving Day, we will showcase our annual festive signature balloons, floats, demonstrations and heralds on the arrival of Santa Claus in front of Macy’s famous flagship store on 34th Street for our national television special with NBC.”
In other words, don’t go to the store, New Yorker – stay home and watch balloons and swim on TV or online.
The company is reducing the number of participants, testing them for COVID-19 and performing pre-recordings typically going live. Participants will wear masks and social distances, student marching bands will not join this year, and there will be no annual Thanksgiving Eve Balloon-Inflation Festival.
Balloons with signature giant character will still be selected, but instead of being flown by 80 to 100 human handlers, they will be flown by special vehicles that include fewer people.
Got Catch in Em: Viewers will see a group of Pikachu and giant Pikachu balloon dances. And there is a specific reason for all the Pikachu obsession, but the Pokemon CompanyUntil the parade begins. This is the 20th consecutive year when a Pikachu balloon will be part of the parade.

Two-way holiday-movie floats
There are many devoted fans of Lifetime Holiday films, and the network is participating in the parade for the first time this year.

Tom and Jerry
Coming in 2021 is a combination live-action / animated Tom and Jerry film, which allows for an epidemic. The famous fighting cat and mouse is a comedic float in the parade this year. In keeping with the couple’s history of slaps, their float is designed to look as if it happened in an accident and has a gag where Tom inflates. Meowza!
