PHILADELPHIA PA – The Spring-Ford Senior High School Marching Band won television exposure across the region last Thursday (Nov. 26, 2009), as the ABC network’s Philadelphia affiliate, WPVI-TV Channel 6, broadcast its performance in the city’s 2009 Thanksgiving Day parade.

Spring-Ford’s was among 12 bands selected from across the county to play in the 90th edition of the nation’s oldest parade to observe the Thanksgiving holiday. Earlier last month, the band earned first-place honors in its Yankee Division during the Cavalcade of Bands’ state championships in Hershey PA.

The band’s appearance on WPVI, although brief, was recorded from the broadcast and posted by YouTube account user SFBandFan to the video sharing service.
