Alameda’s famous dance troupe marches down New York City in 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Alameda’s beloved Tap Dancing Christmas Trees were a part of the 90th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Thursday in New York City. The locally based dance troupe has joined the parade in years past. The group doesn’t just receive a brief shot before cameras transitioned to a nearby float or giant balloon.
