Eleven of America's best marching bands are headed to New York City for the 85th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Bands start their experience with overnight run-throughs for the NBC camera crew, then forward-march the parade route before finally performing their drill routine in front of Macy's near the end of the route. This clip shows a recent run-through of what Miami University (Oxford, Ohio) will perform for the NBC telecast.
