What we know about the five victims of the Waukesha Christmas Parade

Each parade has an action that attracts the eye, which brings a quick smile and a happy laugh.

An act like the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies who, with their pom-poms, sense of humor and moxie, have entertained crowds across the area for decades.

Founded in 1984, they usually performed 25 times a year, though they had to take a break during the earlier months of the pandemic.

“The Grannies are a kind of really tight entity,” said Beth Krohn, a retired member of the group. “We used to call it a sisterhood.”

On Sunday, the women did what they loved best: performing, entertaining, and bringing joy to those gathered at the Waukesha Christmas Parade.

But at one point, as a red SUV roared down the parade route, several of the dancing grandmothers were tragically run down with four killed.
