The marching band from Center Grove High School will march in next year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Band Director Joe Lapka says they found out the band would march in next year's parade a few months ago, but had to keep it secret until the official announcement earlier this week. Lapka says the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of the iconic events that bands strive to be a part of.
Lapka says marching in next year's parade will be the biggest event the Center Grove band has ever participated in. He says the experience will be something the students will remember for a long time.
It will be the third band from Indiana in four years to march in the parade. Carmel's band participated in 2011 and Concord High School in Elkhart will march in the parade later this year.
