Billings Man to Dance in Macy's Day Parade

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The Macy's Day Parade is almost a bigger tradition than Thanksgiving itself.

This year, Christian Parrish from Billings is bringing his dancing expertise to the age-old turkey tradition. Parrish said a national group asked him to take part in the festivities about in October. Christian said he will be the only Montanan dancing with the Native Tribe Performers on Thursday. He said it'll be a rush being in the parade, instead of watching it on TV.

"It's a great feeling, and it's a great opportunity. You wake up on Thanksgiving Day, and you watch the parade. To be in it is an awesome feeling and an awesome opportunity," Christian Parrish Takes the Gun said.

Christian said after performing in the Macy's Day Parade, he plans to travel to Denver and audition for America's Got Talent.
