Anyone following the activities and accomplishments of Gabrielle Ford will want to turn their television sets to WDIV Local 4 to watch the 85th annual America's Thanksgiving Day parade broadcast live from Detroit. The parade begins at 9:05 a.m. at Woodward and Mack avenues.

This year, Ford, of Fenton, known affectionately as Gabe, will be taking part in the parade and recognized for her anti-bullying efforts. The Parade Company selected the theme for this year's parade, "So Much To Believe In." She will also be interviewed live on TV prior to the start of the parade.

Ford's mother, Rhonda Hillman, said she and Ford are very excited about the parade, especially about a surprise they are involved with, which will be shown during the pre-parade interview.
