Members of the Mt. Morris High School Marching Band will travel to Chicago next week to take part in the annual McDonald's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

An invitation to perform at the parade is an honor reserved only for the most talented student performers from across the nation. Under the leadership of Zachary Jacobs, the band will march alongside some of the country's best marching bands, and have the opportunity to learn from nationally acclaimed adjudicators.

In their free time, band members will have a chance to take in the sights of Chicago.

Congrats, Mt. Morris!
