The Lafayette Jefferson High School Marching Band comes all the way from Lafayette, Indiana and is excited to make their third appearance in the Hollywood Christmas Parade since 2001. This award winning marching band which is part of a vibrant music program where over 750 students participate in the Performing Arts, competes extensively in Indiana and the Midwest where it has been named a state or semi-state finalist for the past 18 consecutive years. This parade is part of an exciting adventure for these students where most have never been on an airplane, been to California or seen the ocean!!
