#3Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade
Posted: 9/14/20 at 1:31pm

This belongs in the off topic and it's spelled "Parade". What were they supposed to do? Have thousands gather to see Broadway songs from shows not playing? Put everyone's safety at risk? I think not.

Regarding the "parad" anyone who thought it would happen as normal is a fool.

As for what WILL be happening, in lieu of the normal parade...I appreciate Macy's wanting to do something, but this all sounds like a mess:

From the official press release:

As part of Macy’s comprehensive health and wellness plan a number of changes will be implemented in order to execute this event safely. These changes include, but are not limited to the following:

Reducing the overall number of participants by approximately 75%, and splitting the remaining participants over two days
All participants will be appropriately socially distanced during performances and be required to wear face coverings and additional personal protective equipment depending on their role
Shifting to a television-broadcast-only production with staging for Parade elements focused solely in/ around the Herald Square area of Midtown Manhattan
The traditional 2.5-mile Parade route will not be utilized this year
No participant in the Parade will be under 18 years of age
Previously selected regional High School and College Marching Bands performances will be deferred to the 2021 Macy’s Parade, with locally based professional marching and musical ensembles taking musical duties in the lineup
Macy’s traditional Giant Balloon Inflation public event on Wednesday will not take place
Macy’s signature giant character balloons will be flown without the traditional 80-100 handlers and instead employ an innovative, specially rigged anchor vehicle framework of five specialty vehicles tested and approved by the NYCDOT and NYPD

I wasn't aware the "the ruling committee" invented Corona. Only a truly sick person would value a parade more than human life.

I don't think seeing a giant floating Garfield or whatever they have these days is worth a significantly increased chance of drowing in my own lungs, thank you.

And what do the World Wars have anything to do with it? Those wars didn't endanger the general public with a highly contagious virus, though I'm sure if the Blitzkrieg was coming to New York City nightly, parades would have been canceled too.

Problems with my pad are reason for typos

To those who say I was sick for what I said just think of this . The economy of the state and country possibly damaged for God knows how long . 2 or 3 people at a table was a big problem while those protesting and looting and our high and mighty elected officials were silent. The same group calling for death to cops among other things are given a free pass but livelihoods of countless thousands are possibly finished and that is a problem . Sorry I am not the sick one.

Have a nice holiday season

Every time you bitch about this year, NYC, Cuomo, DeBlasio, not being able to do things because of the pandemic, and "lost memories" that you can't make because things are shut down, I'm going to post a person who lost their life this year due to Covid19, to remind you that you are here, you have air in your lungs and your family can still see you. Not visit you at a cemetery. 

Up first, a huge loss for the Broadway community. He was 41 years old and perfectly healthy. I bet if he was here today, he would be grateful and playing with his infant son, who will never remember his Father. This is Nick Cordero.

It's called science. I realize that's anathema in the religion you seem to be a part of, so don't worry your little head about it.

You don't even live in NYC.

If you actually gave a **** about people with lost incomes and failing businesses, you’d lobbying your esteemed GOP leaders and imploring them to actually craft a comprehensive aid bill to help people, businesses, and state and local governments. 

But all you care about is that you and the Mrs. can’t go to some tired old workhorse of a restaurant after seeing the Rockefeller tree, now that you’ve turned NYC into the at-a-remove tourist stop you always wanted it to be.

“ livelihoods of countless thousands are possibly finished”

Well that’s one thing your geriatric brain got right, we’re up to 195 THOUSAND deaths in the US, because people like you think you’re entitled to certain “liberties.” You aren’t owed anything

According to Franck Eggelhoffer, the party planner from Father of the Bride, Parade is pronounced parad, par as in par for the course and rad as in the name rod (par-rod) so perhaps the thread starter was influenced by Martin Short.

I suspect the thread starter is more akin to Marty's character in Alice in Wonderland on tv a few years later.
