OVERVIEW MEET THE CHOIR THE HISTORY

For the 2020 Parade, past choir members were invited back to sing "We Believe," a holiday anthem highlighting the wonder and joy of the season. The choir will rehearse remotely with Grammy- and Emmy-nominated conductor Judith Clurman from the Manhattan School of Music and on Parade day these Macy’s stars will spread holiday cheer from their house to yours.

ALL TOGETHER NOW

Since 2017, we’ve presented an epic holiday gift that could only come from the world’s largest store. Our massive tree has been adorned in past celebrations with a choir of more than 100 Macy’s colleagues who have debuted an original song live on national television.

THE CHOIR

This cross-generational chorus of beautiful voices is all about celebrating Macy’s in a unique way. Here’s your chance to get to know some of the singers who make the float so special.

THE HISTORY

The idea of a Macy’s choir is in our heritage. In the 1950s, the Macy Singers, a choral group of Macy’s workers from New York City, even recorded an album. In 2020, we reimagined that choral history.

MACY'S PARADE
GUIDELINES & SAFETY RULES

To safely produce this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade during this unprecedented time, Macy’s partnered with the City and State of New York to create an innovative plan that would continue this treasured tradition.

The safety of participants and spectators is Macy’s top priority.

In order to avoid gathering large crowds, the annual production will forgo marching down the traditional 2.5-mile route in Manhattan. Instead it will be reimagined over the course of several days as a television-only event leading up to the live Thanksgiving Day broadcast that will feature the breadth of Macy’s signature elements.

Reinvented to safely keep spectators in New York City at home and families nationwide glued to their televisions, the 94th edition of the iconic event ushers in the holiday season with a televised celebration featuring giant character balloons, animated floats, incredible street performances, musical acts and the one and only Santa Claus, broadcast from 34th Street on NBC and Telemundo.

In preparation for this one-of-a-kind celebration, the Macy’s team meticulously reviewed every area of the Parade playbook to put in place enhanced health and safety practices that align with CDC guidelines, as well as local and state government protocols.
