NEW YORK CITY -- The Greendale High School Marching Band on Thanksgiving -- Thursday, November 24th performed in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City!
It was a huge honor for the young men and women who worked hard to get there.
Tom Reifenberg, director of bands, around 11:30 a.m. lead 270 students onto the school's biggest stage ever: Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
"Performing in front of millions and millions of people! We've performed in front of thousands of people before at national competitions. But 50 million on TV is a lot more than that," Reifenberg said.
Band members learned of the honor in April 2015 -- and they've been practicing ever since -- leading up to the big day!
900 parents, friends and relatives came along on this trip to NYC -- and many more watched from home.
The Greendale High School Marching Band performed two pieces during the parade: Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling" and a Mary Poppins melody.
The Greendale High School Marching Band was one of just seven high school bands in the nation taking part in this parade.
