Track the band as it marches toward Herald Square

11/21/2011

Follow Miami University's marching band as it heads toward New York City's Herald Square during the 85th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Thursday, Nov. 24, with a new mobile application featuring a participant tracker button.

Macy’s and MyCityWay have teamed up to bring spectators parade information plus a comprehensive guide to New York City. The App will include traffic cameras to allow for real time parade viewing, and a parade participant tracker allowing spectators to follow 14 various cheerleading, dance troupes, marching bands, and Santa’s float. More details are available below in the PDF attachment.

Miami's 257-member band will play "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" as they usher in Santa and his sleigh. The band was chosen from a pool of more than 150 applicants based on their superior musical ability, marching technique and performance skills. This is the second time Miami has appeared in the parade; the first was in 2003.
