GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Two Wisconsin high school bands are heading to the nation's capital to march in the National Independence Day Parade on Friday.
About 15 bands from throughout the country will march -- including students from Green Bay East and Hortonville high schools.
Youngsters from both schools will see some of Washington's top attractions -- including the U.S. Capitol, the Smithsonian, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and a number of national monuments.
The Hortonville band also plans performances at the Armed Forces Retirement Center and the National World War II Memorial.
Green Bay East band director Karen Iken says it might be the only chance for some of the youngsters to visit Washington -- and it will be important to put their best feet forward for both their school and themselves.
