NEW YORK CITY (KFSM) – 13 Dixie Belles from Southside High School in Fort Smith are taking part in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The group has been in New York for six days now, and have had many rehearsals over the past few days in preparation for the big day.

Even though the parade starts at 9 a.m., the girls had to be lined up starting at 5 a.m. Thanksgiving morning.

The girls will perform along with the 650 other Spirit of America dancers in the parade. They’ll also perform a dance at Herald Square in front of Macy’s.

Coverage of the Thanksgiving Day Parade starts at 8 a.m. on Channel 5.
