Kids to perform in Macy's Parade

November 15, 2005

Valdosta - If you watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade next week, you may see some familiar faces.

Jared, Jordan, and Morgan Wesemann, and Kelcie Mackenzie of Valdosta will perform live in the opening number of the parade next Thursday.

Back in June, the kids auditioned in Tampa against 1,500 other children. Only 460 were picked.

They'll head to New York City Friday and spend five days attending Broadway workshops and classes to prepare for the performance.  "It's going to be pretty nice being in the parade and having a lot of fun in New York, and there will be a lot of famous people there so that's going to be nice," said Morgan Wesemann.

The Macy's Day parade airs next Thursday morning at 9:00 here on WALB-TV.
