Watch Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade 2020 Livestream

The 2020 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade: How to stream live, when to watch and who’s performing This year’s 94th edition of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will be unlike any ever before — and you can watch all the historic, COVID-safe festivities right here on Yahoo Entertainment.

When to watch

Beginning at 9 a.m. ET/6 a.m. PT on Thursday, Nov. 26, the parade will follow a severely truncated route down Broadway; instead of traversing two-plus miles from New York’s Upper West Side to Herald Square cheered on by tens of thousands of spectators, the signature balloons and floats will only move along the block in front of Macy’s flagship store on 34th Street, with nary an onlooker allowed.

While upwards of 10,000 crew members typically staff the streets, wrangle balloons and shepherd performers, this year’s proceedings will only have 1,500.

Who’s performing

The livestream, presented by Verizon and hosted by Mario Lopez, will featured a mix of live and pre-recorded performances from Dolly Parton, Patti LaBelle, Lauren Alaina, Jimmie Allen and Noah Cyrus, Ally Brooke, Sofia Carson, CNCO, Jimmy Fallon and the Roots, Karol G, Tori Kelly, Ella Mai, Miss America 2020 Camille Schrier, the Sesame Street Muppets and cast, Leslie Odom Jr., Keke Palmer, Pentatonix, Bebe Rexha, Jordin Sparks, Sebastia n Yatra, and Brett Young.

Additionally, the casts of such Broadway hits as Hamilton, Mean Girls, Jagged Little Pill and Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations — idled since March by the pandemic — have recorded special numbers for the show, while the high-kicking Radio City Music Hall Rockettes will also make their traditional appearance.
