The future (of parades) is now. This year, NBC and Verizon’s 360-degree livestream of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will incorporate 5G technology to add hologram and augmented-reality features to the livestream, TheWrap has learned exclusively. Lilly Singh and Terry Crews will host the high-tech annual Turkey Day extravaganza.

The “A Little Late With Lilly Singh” host and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star will post up in Central Park, while actors Christian Acosta and Nastassja Bolivar take place at Bryant Park. Ross Mathews will steer the 360 Roving Camera from inside the parade, we’re told.
