Bailey Gibson from Clinton County High School in Albany is one of over 500 junior high and high school cheerleaders from across the U.S. who will perform in the 92nd annual Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade, the oldest Thanksgiving Day parade in the nation.

The individuals invited to perform in the parade are cheerleading and dance All Americans selected from camps around the country, including camps organized by Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA).

All Americans will be in Philadelphia from November 20 through the 23rd, practicing their routine and visiting Philadelphia landmarks. All Americans are selected via tryout based on either superior cheerleading or dance skills. Only the top 12 percent of the cheerleaders and dancers who attend camps earn the chance to march in a holiday spectacular of this caliber.

Bailey Gibson will perform with the All-American group in the annual Thanksgiving Day festivities through the heart of historic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The event is televised in the Philadelphia area and syndicated throughout the United States.
