Plot Synopsis

After covering Thanksgiving parades from across America for more than 50 years, CBS changed its coverage in 2003 to solely cover the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade live from New York City, with musical performances by fan-favorite entertainers.

THE 2020 THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE ON CBS was hosted by Kevin Frazier for the tenth straight year with six-time co-host Keltie Knight. CBS broadcast the event on Thursday, November 26, 2020 live in most time zones (9am-Noon ET; 8-11am CT; 7-10am MT) and delayed on the West Coast (1-4pm PT). The three-hour special features portions of the 94th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from New York City. Even though the parade is observing COVID-19 restrictions, Frazier and Knight celebrate the holiday and take viewers on a tour of the most popular balloons, floats and highlights from years past, including the iconic Santa Claus.

In addition, the special features new musical performances and celebrity interviews. Country stars Maddie & Tae perform their new song "Merry Married Christmas," and Mickey Guyton performs a rendition of "O Holy Night." Plus, casts of the hit Broadway musicals "Dear Evan Hansen" perform "You Will Be Found;" and cast members of "Come From Away" perform "Somewhere in the Middle of Nowhere." Also, Frazier and Knight chat with celebrities about their holiday plans, including Phil Keoghan, host of THE AMAZING RACE and TOUGH AS NAILS; Folake Olowofoyeku, star of the hit comedy BOB (HEARTS) ABISHOLA; Lina Esco, star of fan favorite drama S.W.A.T.; Erich Bergen from MADAM SECRETARY, and others.
