The Mount Vernon High School marching band Marching Mustangs will be having a March-a-Thon Parade on May 27. This event is a fundraiser to raise money for their trip to Chicago.
In November the marching band will play in the 2016 Thanksgiving Parade, which is broadcast live on WGN to over 10 millions homes worldwide and to millions along State Street in Chicago, Illinois.
The band will march and play music throughout Mount Vernon and attendees can donate to the cause. Lawn concerts will be provided along the parade route for a donation of $25.
