HHS Marching Band Performing in Cherry Blossom Parade

The Warrior Pride marching band was selected to play in the national event.

This weekend, Havre de Grace High School students will bring the noise to the National Cherry Blossom Parade in Washington, D.C. 

"Tomorrow is the day! The Warrior Pride Marching Band is leading off the Cherry Blossom Parade!" the Havre de Grace High School Music Boosters posted on Facebook Friday.

The Warriors, who performed at Disney last year and will be in New York City's Veterans Day parade this November, were selected to help kick off the Cherry Blossom Parade after auditioning, according to The Record.

A special band made up of students from two schools was created to lead the parade, which travels along Constitution Avenue from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday. Called the Maryland State National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade Band, the group consists of students from Havre de Grace and Westminster high schools.

In addition to the marching band, the parade features floats and celebrity appearances by Carmen Electra; Redskins wide receiver Joshua Morgan, who is the parade's grand marshal; and Grammy award-winning singer Mya, who will be performing.

The parade attracts more than 100,000 visitors each year, according to the National Cherry Blossom Festival organization.

Enthusiasm is building for the annual event, with The Washington Post giving Havre de Grace High School a nod in its "activities you won't want to miss" list.

Can't make it to the nation's capital? Viewers can watch the Cherry Blossom Parade and check out the Warriors marching band online; it will be streamed live on ABC 7, according to Marching.com.
