Steven Hendricks, left, the Director of Bands at Davis High School, and Wesley Whatley, the Creative Director for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, unveil the drum head for the 2017 parade at Davis High School on Monday, April 11, 2016. Hendricks knew that the band had been selected, but none of the students or other band staff found out until Monday morning.
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, which means the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is close at hand.
Those in Northern Utah have a special connection to the parade, as the Davis High School marching band will take center stage as one of the parade’s performers. The announcement was made to students and the public all the way back in April 2016.
