Singer and songwriter Don McLean is to perform on South Dakota's float in this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York later this month.
The South Dakota Department of Tourism announced Thursday that McLean will appear on the float and perform his 1971 hit "American Pie" during the Nov. 22 parade.
The Department of Tourism's "Mount Rushmore's American Pride" float will feature Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Black Hills National Forest and Badlands National Park in an effort to drive more visitors to the state.
This is the third year the float has appeared in the Macy's parade.
