Ooltewah band marches in Tournament of Roses Parade
Pasadena, California (WDEF) — One local band started off their New Year in a very special way.
Ooltewah High School’s band marched their way through the Tournament of Roses Parade Monday morning.
The parade takes place every year in Pasadena, California.
News 12 spoke to some members of the band last week right before they left.
“A lot of practices and a lot of preparation from classes before us, so that aren’t going with us now that set that legacy for us so were able to do the things we get to do now,” said senior Miles DePrimo.
Ooltewah’s marching band is one of only 12 from around the country chosen for the honor.
