Elf on the Shelf Macy’s Thanksgiving 2012 Charles Sykes AP

The Elf on the Shelf was scheduled to appear at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade later today, but without his usual 60 handlers on the ground; instead he and all the other balloons will be tethered to specially equipped trucks as the parade goes virtual while spectators watch taped segments at home. The parade route this year is limited to a single block in front of Macy’s flagship department store in New York City. Marching bands and other drill teams are all from the Tri-State area to minimize travel, and though Broadway has been dark since March, the casts of four musicals were reassembled, glad to be performing together again.
