It was a big day for LISD. Close to 500 local band students marched in the nationally televised Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California.
Lubbock High, Monterey, Estacado and Coronado bands joined together to make the All Lubbock Marching Band.
It's the first time any LISD band has been invited to march in the prestigious parade.
Wearing uniforms resembling our state flag, they played "Deep In the Heart of Texas," marching more than six miles.
Lubbock ISD Communication Coordinator Brian Morris was "Excited and astounded," by the honor. "This is just a fantastic opportunity for Lubbock, Texas," Morris said. "Not just LISD and not just our four high schools, but for the whole community and actually for the State of Texas because we're the only band from Texas at the Rose Parade."
They were also the largest out of all the bands including the college bands.
Each year, only 22 bands are chosen through a selection process. They're chosen about a year and half in advance.
