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. Now, for the fourth year running, we’re re-imagining 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 of New York to create an innovative plan that would continue this treasured tradition.

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

In order to avoid gathering large crowds of spectators along our traditional 2.5-mile route in New York City, we have shortened the route to focus solely on the last section of our annual march. On Thanksgiving Day, we will showcase our annual celebration’s signature balloons, floats, performances and herald the arrival of Santa Claus, in front of Macy’s famed flagship store on 34th Street for our national television special on NBC.

This change will allow millions of New Yorkers and the nation to safely experience Macy’s beloved spectacle from the comforts of home.

To ensure a safe experience for all involved, we are not marching down the streets of Manhattan this year and instead will bring all the magic of this American tradition to you on television and online. 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.
