CHEYENNE — The Wyoming All-State Marching Band will march in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City on Thursday.
The band consists of 245 high schoolers from 36 schools around Wyoming.
The band will wear white pants, red and blue shirts and white cowboy hats.
It will play classic Western music — the theme from “The Magnificent Seven,” “Ghost Riders in the Sky,” “Silverado,” and the University of Wyoming’s fight song, “Ragtime Cowboy Joe.”
Their music will be heard by more than 2 million people who will line the parade route. An estimated 45 million people will watch the parade on television.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports that the Wyoming All-State Marching Band last played the parade in 1995.
Parade organizers select only 11 bands annually.
