After the tragic events in Waukesha, Wisconsin last month where a man ran down innocent paradegoers in a Red SUV, killing 6 and injuring dozens of others, the dancing grannies, one of the groups victimized in the parade, made a return this Saturday.  FOX News Reports

The Milwaukee Dancing Grannies made their first appearance in a Christmas parade Saturday since a suspect drove through a parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, last month, killing four of the group’s members and two other people.

“We are going to get through this,” Dancing Granny Laura Thein told FOX 6 Milwaukee at the Franklin, Wisconsin, parade Saturday. “We are very strong women, and with the strength of each other we will get through it.”

Thein said the SUV barely missed her on that day.

“When I looked, all I saw was bodies in the street,” she told FOX 6. “It took me a couple minutes to kind of get my head together because I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.”



The Milwaukee Dancing Grannies have been a feature as Wisconsin parades for years, and doesn’t plan to let the savage attack last month deter them from future events.

“Our group was doing what they loved, performing in front of crowds in a parade putting smiles on faces of all ages, filling them with joy and happiness.” The group said on Facebook.
