NEW YORK — The show must go on in New York! 

Macy's has announced its intent to hold the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade despite concerns over the coronavirus pandemic. 

Macy's cited the safe and innovative production of the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks as a means to hold the parade in November. 

The company released a statement on its website, saying "it is our intention to similarly reimagine Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this November."

More details are expected in the fall.

This year's parade will take place Thursday, Nov. 26 from 9 a.m. - noon ET.

The world's largest parade first began in the streets of Manhattan in 1924 and has been broadcast on NBC since 1953.
