The excitement is building for Prospect’s Marching Knights to perform in the 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. There are less than two days to wait to watch the Marching Knights Thanksgiving morning.

During the past month, the Marching Knights from District 214’s Prospect High School practiced at the Gattas Memorial Stadium with a mock up of the location near Herald Square in Manhattan, and the spotlight performance location of the flagship Macy’s store in New York City at 34th Street and 7th Avenue.

This week the marching band members are touring New York City, visiting the 9/11 museum, One World Trade Center, Chinatown and more. they practicing choreography with Broadway professionals.

News today is out that Prospect Marching Knight Hannah Thornton was awarded the Bob Hope Band Scholarship Award. Macy’s and the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation have proudly presented the Bob Hope Band Scholarship Award since 2003.

Members of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Selection Committee evaluate the essays and select the winning recipient. The selected student receives a $10,000. Scholarship award towards her/his education. In addition, the school band program receives $10,000.
