The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will go on, but it'll look very different than it has over its last 94 years.

New York (CNN Business)The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade will go on, but it'll look very different than it has over its last 94 years.

This year's parade will still have the giant balloons, colorful floats and, of course, Santa Claus, but it will "shift to a television-only special presentation," Macy's and New York City announced on Monday.

The parade will still air across the country on NBC on Thanksgiving morning, but the pandemic forced Macy's to "reimagine" the event.

"It will not be the same parade we're used to," said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday.

Susan Tercero, the executive producer of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, said the company "felt it was important to continue this cherished holiday tradition that has been the opening act to the holiday season for generations of families. "

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

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is not only the start of the holiday season for millions of people, but also one of the most watched events on TV each year.
