While many South Mississippians spend their Thanksgivings crowding around the television watching a football game, indulging in a feast or preparing for Black Friday shopping, students in the West Harrison High School Marching Band spent the morning marching down the streets of New York City in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Many congratulated the band for the nationally-televised performance.
Michael Giacchino, the film’s composer, took to Twitter to show his approval of the performance.
Students of the band tweeted their appreciation of the opportunity and thanked Giacchino for his recognition.
The band has been staying in New Jersey while busing into New York, band director Tim Garrett told the Sun Herald in a previous report. They will be gone for a week.
