Here are some fun online and in-person Thanksgiving activities provided by the amazing businesses in our area.
The Bronx Zoo’s striking seasonal celebration featuring animated lights and LED displays of safari animals from around the world is returning again this year. This year’s experience will take place in a larger area in the zoo for ample room to social distance, and visitors can expect the zoo to have close to 50 more animal lanterns than last year, and five geographically representative lantern safaris from various corners of the world. Entertainment will include holiday-themed music, ice carvings, costumed characters, stilt walkers, souvenirs and seasonal treats like hot chocolate and s’mores.
On Nov 19, the Herald Square store will unveil its 2020 window theme, “Give, Love, Believe,” a tribute to first responders and our city. Those who pass by can expect a lot of heart: One window features a busy city with “thank you” neon signs in 16 languages; another depicts the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, which is making some changes this year. Shoppers will be able to catch a glimpse of the six windows on the Broadway side of the Herald Square flagship until Jan 1, 2021.
