Peppy "All American"cheerleading squad members 2015
a really big group of lively and spirited young ladies from high schools and colleges all over America
My favorite part of the parade are the BANDS AND MAJORETTES twirling their batons!
Believe me, those parents and families are PROUD. The work and practice involved in getting there is astounding. These kids work so hard at their routines, and then there is the fund-raising to get themselves there. It takes alot to get a whole band, sponsors, parents and chaperones, directors, equipment and musical instruments and uniforms on a trip of that magnitude. Most of them are from small towns. Many of these kids have never been out of their state and quite a few had never been on an airplane! So this is just the biggest trip of their high school or college career and the highlight of being in Band. (can you tell I'm a former Band/fire twirling Majorette parent? LOL)
"Catch!!" (mercy don't drop on National tv!) lol
My other favorite event.....the lovely Radio City Music Hall Rockettes!
Aren't they just adorable?
