The 87th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is taking place this morning as we begin to smell the fresh aroma of turkey coming from our kitchens. Every year we see plenty of incredible floats and balloons, along with some questionable lip synced performances.

However, the performers that cannot fake it are the dancers, who have to suck it up through the cold and do their normal routing.

Unfortunately for one child during their performance, the ground may have been a little slick for the performance and after coming down from a one-footed pose, the poor kid bit the dust and landed right on her butt.

A cold surface is never fun, especially when you aren’t expecting to come crashing down onto it.

The Macy’s Day Parade will continue to take place until noon ET, so there is still plenty of time to catch the remaining floats and performers as we wait for Santa Claus to come rolling through town to draw an end to the early Thanksgiving festivities.
