Majestics grace Macy’s Day Parade


The Holiday season is all about tradition. Eating turkey with the family, going Black Friday shopping with friends, and of course watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade started in 1924 and since then has featured countless famous performers and elaborate giant balloons in the shape of cartoon characters. This Thanksgiving, the Majestics will join in on this celebrated parade.

The Majestics leave on Saturday November 19th for New York City where they will dance in the parade on November 24th, Thanksgiving Day.

“When I first found out I was beyond excited. I had never been to New York before and to be there during Thanksgiving with my friends sounded like an amazing opportunity and a memory I will never forget.” Junior Lieutenant Nicole Andrews said.

The Majestics’ director Ms. Lowrance has connections in the Spirit of America dance team that helped the team get selected to participate in the parade.

“We found out about the opportunity from our director Ms. Lowrance. She helps with the Spirit of America dancers and our team had gotten selected to dance in the parade.” Andrews said.

Even though the girls are in New York for dancing, there are some things in New York that just can’t be missed.

“While we are there we are going to see Sister Act and the Rockettes perform,” junior Majestic Brycen Raybon said, “and we’re shopping around Times Square and of course seeing the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building.”

This is not the first time the Majestics have been involved in the parade.

“The Majestics performed in the parade three years ago,” Andrews said “I still remember the excitement and joy in the girls eyes as they returned home. Its really an amazing opportunity.”

The Majestics will make their appearance in the world famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 24th at 9:00 a.m.
