On Sept. 16, The Ohio State University Marching Band was selected to perform in the 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, representing the state of Ohio. This will mark the first Parade appearance by the band.
The Ohio State University Marching Band will join the parade to the call of “Let’s Have a Parade,” the iconic phrase that has signaled the start of every Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade since 1924.
Each year, the Macy’s Parade Band Committee looks for bands that have the stage presence and musical and marching abilities to captivate more than 3.5 million live spectators and more than 50 million viewers. The Ohio State University Marching Band was selected from more than 100 applicants as one of 10 bands to march in the 92nd edition of the annual holiday spectacle.
