PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — It was just Monday night practice before the 6abc Dunkin’ Thanksgiving Day Parade.
But when you see the smiles on the performers’ faces, the dance moves and music on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art become infectious.
The rehearsals lasted from 6:30 p.m. to around 10:00 p.m

Action News spoke to some of the groups attending this year’s show – such as Mulford Dance Studio.
“We’ve been doing this for 29 years and it’s just the best feeling in the whole world,” said Emily Bloomer.
We also met with the Quinn Center for Performing Arts.
“We can experience many things with other dancers. It’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Aubrey Dunham.
Parade organizers say everything is on schedule.
“It’s more than 35 musical numbers, floats, balloons and bands from all over the country. Right now it’s right where it belongs,” said Executive Producer John Best.
“When people pack up along the parade route, it’s warm and you can’t help but feel that warmth inside when you see all the great music. That Christmas spirit is really picking up in Philadelphia,” added John Morris, VP of Content, Development, and Innovation for 6abc.
