Performers rehearse ahead of Macy's Parade
NEW YORK (WABC) -- The rain couldn't keep the thousands of performers from rehearsing for Thursday's big Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Any other night they'd call it a dry run.
Tuesday night it was a wet and cold practice session outside of Macy's ahead of the big parade.
Its two days until curtain call.
The young and excited were all singing and dancing in the rain.
Half of the groups practiced on Monday, and the other half Tuesday.
All 11 bands, 1,600 cheerleaders, and 8,000 performers will proudly march through the city at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The key here is for performers to know their marks, the cameras to be positioned and all to go as smoothly as possible.
The only variable they can't practice until perfect is the weather.
