London New Years Day Parade


The Leon High School Band is heading across the pond to London, England next year after being chosen to participate in the country’s 2014 New Year’s Day Parade.  The news came in a surprise announcement from representatives of the Queen on Friday.

The band will join 12 other marching bands in representing the United States during London’s 2014 New Year’s Day Parade.  The Parade’s director Bob Bone, says American marching bands have always been a major draw for the London crowd.
