Local dancers prepare for Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

INDEPENDENCE (KWWL) -

Two Independence girls are preparing for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Madison Arend and Alyssa Jensen prepared for a month for the big day, before they left for New York City.

Madison says she's excited to perform with the 500 other dancers.

"I'm really excited to go. Hopefully, I will meet some new friends, have some fun along the way exploring the city. I'll probably be very nervous the day of the parade," Madison said.

Madison and Alyssa said they've been practicing for more than a month.

They left for New York City on Saturday, and they also caught up with their friend, Aunna  Marzen, who will be playing her trumpet in the parade.

You can watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade here on KWWL at 9 a.m.
