Rockettes Christmas Stories: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

T

he Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of our favorite events each holiday season. And for Rockette Megan, her first year performing in the Parade was a moment she’ll never forget!

Long before she became a Rockette, it was a tradition in Megan’s family to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade. When the Rockettes would grace her television (live from 34th Street), she would think to herself, “I have to do this one day!”

Fast forward to years later and Megan had the opportunity to perform for the first time in the Thanksgiving Day Parade as a Rockette… But that’s not all! At the time, her mother was helping to make costumes for the Parade and she convinced Megan’s father and sister to be characters on a float as well—it was truly a family affair!

That year, Megan had a lot to be thankful for: She not only achieved her dream of becoming a Rockette, but she got to share that special moment with her entire family by her side.
