Macy's and the City of NY announced Friday that they would be reimagining the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this year. The televised special will air on November 26 from 8 AM- 11 AM CT on NBC.

"While it will certainly look different in execution, this year's Macy's Parade celebration will once again serve its historical objective - to bring joy into the hearts of millions across the nation".

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will air on NBC from 9 a.m.to noon in all USA time zones.

As part of Macy's new plan, the number of participants will be reduced by approximately 75%.

The annual giant balloon Inflation Celebration that traditionally draws crowds to the Upper West Side on Thanksgiving eve will not take place. Participants will be distanced during performances and required to wear face coverings or additional personal protective equipment.

Santa Claus will also make an appearance outside 34th Street's flagship Macy's store. Included in this year's star-studded Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade lineup are Dolly Parton, Tori Kelly, Sofia Carson, Sebastián Yatra, Pentatonix, Patti LaBelle, Noah Cyrus, Leslie Odom Jr., Lauren Alaina, Keke Palmer, Karol G, Jordin Sparks, Jimmie Allen, Ella Mai, CNCO, Camille Schrier, Brett Young, Bebe Rexha, Ally Brooke and the New York City Ballet company.

Previously selected regional High School and College Marching Bands performances will be deferred to next year's parade, with only locally based professional marching and musical ensembles joining in.

You can check out the height and width for each of these balloons and floats, along with the other balloons in the parade on Macy's website.
