Macy's Thanksgiving Parade

We just found out that two of Joshua's high school friends, Kate and Michael, will be marching in the Macy's Parade with the Great American Marching Band. Kate is a trumpet player and Michael plays the trombone; both are very good musicians.

Kate's mother sent the following information in an email:

If you watch the parade and want to look for them, Kate will be in the second row, second from the right as the band marches toward the camera. Michael is in the 18th row, about in the middle as there are 30 rows.

Congratulations to Kate and Michael! I'll be looking for you.

There are some of Josh's friends from Oakton who will be marching with James Madison University.

Yes. I know Kelsey is one of the drum majors. I can't remember who else Joshua knows in that band. He'll have to fill us in.

Ben Elliot is marching as well. I believe Colleen McPadden, the drum major my freshmen year is marching piccolo as well. Someone I marched with in 07 is in the band as well. I don't know who else is in the band.

Having visited Manhattan this past May and visited the Macy's store, I have a new appreciation for events that happen in New York, like the Macy's parade. It would be amazing to see.
