West Chester band to play in Macy's parade

(FOX19) - A local marching band has won the honor of performing in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Macy's announced on Monday that The Lakota West Marching Firebirds have the honor of playing in the parade next year.

The Firebirds were one of 11 bands selected from hundreds of schools nationwide.

The kids got the news at a special assembly Monday afternoon.

Last year, the Miami University marching band marched in the parade and led Santa Claus down the streets of New York City.
