The group will travel to the Big Apple during spring break next week to participate in the parade, the 252nd in the city’s history, according to a release from District 833.
The parade runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 16. The Woodbury marching band is set to step off at 12:50 p.m. and will reach TV cameras between 1:30-2 p.m. Portions of the parade will be streamed live online here.
The band will play John Philip Sousa’s Minnesota March and the Owl City/Carly Rae Jepsen song Good Time.
Plans have been in the works for more than a year, the release says, and Woodbury students will hold a send-off performance at 7:45 a.m. Thursday, March 14, in the Woodbury High School auditorium.
Along with performing in the NYC parade, the group plans to see The Lion King on Broadway, attend a Broadway musical workshop, visit Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Times Square, the 9/11 Memorial and FDNY Memorial Wall, Liberty and Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty, according to the release.
