Greenwood, Ind. Members of a central Indiana high school's marching band will spend Thanksgiving next year marching in New York City as they participate in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The Daily Journal reports Center Grove's marching band is one of about a dozen bands chosen to perform in the 2014 parade.

Parade creative director Wesley Whatley broke the news of Center Grove's selection to the band after its spring concert Wednesday night.

Parade officials say more than 175 bands from around the world applied to march in the 2014 parade.

Band director Kevin Schuessler says fundraising will start soon to ensure every band member can make the trip.
