According to reports, some musical performances will be recorded ahead of time, and there will be no public viewing during balloon inflation and staging or places to gather and watch. The parade will honour the city and all the challenges it has endured this year by including groups from many of the festive parades New York had to cancel in 2020 because of COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the participants will wear masks, maintain a safe distance and follow the necessary precautions throughout the event.
