Battery Creek band to march in Chicago Thanksgiving parade

1 min read

The Battery Creek High School marching band was chosen to be one of 10 bands marching in the Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade.

According to WTOC, someone spotted a YouTube video of the Dolphins doing their thing and invited them to Chicago.

“This is a first for any school in South Carolina, let alone Beaufort County,” wrote WTOC’s  Jamie Ertel.

The trip cost each student more than $800. Much of that money was crowd-sourced from the local community.

The parade begins at 8 a.m. The forecast is 36° and mostly cloudy, so these Lowcountry teenagers are in for a bracing experience.
