The 94th Detroit Thanksgiving parade will march on, but any spectators probably will be in their pajamas. People will not be allowed to line the parade route in downtown Detroit because of the coronavirus. Instead they'll have to watch the parade on television. Another Thanksgiving tradition, the Turkey Trot, has been canceled. People are encouraged to run it on their own. The race usually attracts thousands of runners.
