Newsome High band to perform at Macy’s parade

Members of the Newsome High School band will gladly have to make alternate Thanksgiving plans next year.

That’s because the band has been selected among hundreds of nationwide applicants to perform at the 2016 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

Parade officials had alerted Newsome administrators and band director Michael Miller of the selection, but members of the Wolfpack Marching Band only learned of the honor through a surprise announcement this morning in the school’s auditorium.

The Lithia school will be the only one in Florida — and only one of 10 marching bands — represented at the parade.
