Marching Illini Win Coveted Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade Spot

It’s a huge honor for the University of Illinois Marching Illini band.

The Marching Illini have been chosen to be the final marching band in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The final band position is highly coveted and will set the musical stage for Santa’s entrance in the parade.

The performance is scheduled to be televised at 11:54AM Thursday morning to an estimated audience of 50M people around the world.
