It may have been the surprise of a lifetime for Baldwinsville's Baker High School marching band.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Marching Bees found out it has been selected to march in the 2014 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The creative director and the head of the band selection committee for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade announced the news to the band during a special gathering. School staff members worked in secret with parade officials to plan the gathering.
The Baker High School marching band was selected out of hundreds of applications from across the country to be one of ten bands marching through the streets of New York City.
