On Tuesday afternoon, the more than 220 marching band members were told they have been invited to perform in the 2017 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

Their selection was kept under wraps until an announcement by parade officials in the school’s performing arts center, an occasion attended by a number of local and state elected officials, including Gov. Mark Dayton.

“It’s our opinion that Rosemount High School is one of the finest marching bands in the country,” Wesley Whatley, Thanksgiving Day parade creative director, told the crowd.

Rosemount will be the first Minnesota band to perform in the parade since Forest Lake High School in 1989. It was one of 10 bands chosen from nearly 200 applicants.
