The Homestead High School Marching Band is preparing to perform in the 2018 Rose Parade in Pasadena on Jan. 1.

The annual Rose Parade selects marching bands 15 months in advance to give groups time to raise money to travel to Pasadena. This year, Homestead High is one of 20 bands to perform.

This year’s Rose Parade theme is “Making A Difference.” To honor the theme, the Homestead High band will stop at Shriners Hospital in Pasadena and perform for the children. 

The marching band will also donate to the children at Shriners Hospital. A coloring book published by Homestead High student Amanda Sun, “Love: A Body Positivity Coloring Book,” will be donated along with coloring utensils and materials.

The Homestead Marching band is #72 in the line-up for the 2018 Tournament of Roses Parade.
