Like just about everything this year, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is not going to look like it did in past years.

"For more than 90 years, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® has kicked off the holiday season with its signature entertainment spectacle, making it one of the world’s most beloved events," the company said in a statement today. "Following our successful, safe and innovative production of Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks®, it is our intention to similarly reimagine Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade this November. Stay tuned for more details later this fall."

For the fireworks, the company did five-minute shows in each of New York's boroughs, with a grand finale at the Empire State Building. The shows were held in a different borough each night for a week, and the locations were kept a secret, so crowds wouldn't gather to watch.

The company provided no details about what the parade will look like this year.
