Greendale’s high school marching band has been chosen to participate in the 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.

Those looking to watch their local marching band can catch the parade on NBC, the official broadcast partner, from 9 a.m. to noon in all time zones. Locally, CBS (CBS 58 in the Milwaukee area) will be covering the parade live starting at 8 a.m. Central time through 11 a.m.

The students held a preview of their performance on Nov. 19 and left the next day to see a few sights in New York before the big event.

Greendale High School Director of Bands Tom Reifenberg shared some thoughts before the group left regarding preparation as well as the mood of the students.

"I can't wait to see the excitement on their faces as the parade begins," he said.
