SHERBURNE – “I just love parades,” said Sherburne-Earlville high school senior Meaghan Weinell, expounding her excitement to return to one of the country’s largest and long-standing parades once again.
Come November, Weinell will make her way from cowtown Sherburne to midtown Manhattan to play alongside America’s elite young musicians during the 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. With saxophone in hand, she’ll take her place in the lineup of only 250 students from all over the country who have been selected to play as part of the Macy’s Great American Marching Band before trekking nearly three miles through the heart of New York City in front of an audience of millions.
As rare an opportunity as this is, Weinell has done it before. This marks her second consecutive year chosen to participate with some of the country’s best and youngest musical talent in one of most beloved annual parades.
