Chicago Human Rhythm Project will once again been wishing "Tappy Holidays" to Chicagoland by shim-shamming down State St. as part of the 75th annual McDonald's Thanksgiving Day Parade. This year, we're thrilled to announce that over 225 dancers are participating, accompanied by the beat of over 10 drummers organized by Brian Wach and Huei Yuan Pan.

Even more exciting, the 2008 parade broadcast on WGN has been expanded to 3 hours, allowing for an hour of dedicated performances before the parade begins. The Parade has asked CHRP to be one of the performance groups, so don't miss our tappers live on State St. at 8:50am sharp.

With all this exciting news, we hope you can join us on State St., watch from home, or just set your DVR before the parade passes by!
