Kid to Know cheering in holiday parade

MATTOON, Ill. (WCIA) -- This Kid to Know really has something to cheer about. Ella Bahney has taken her talent on the road to Philadelphia.

The 6th grader is one of three students from Mattoon Middle School chosen to perform in Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade. She's the only one going.

It's actually the oldest Thanksgiving Day parade in the country.

Ella has been cheering since she was 5 and loves the tumbling part of the sport the best. But, she also loves how she feels when she's in front of a crowd.

Ella says she will be a little nervous at the start of the parade, but once she starts walking, she says it's going to be an amazing experience.
