Donations accepted to march in this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
November 5, 2012 — The pride of Cajun Country received an invitation to march in this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. According to Brain Taylor, the band director, UL's band will be the only university band in the parade this year.
Taylor says this year is costing roughly $450,000, and band members have raised over $300,000 so far by paying for it out of pocket and some fundraiser nights at various restaurants.
"Ninety seconds of national air time to represent our school, our community, and our state is a fantastic opportunity that shouldn't be taken very lightly."--Brian Taylor
