Asheville High School to march in Inaugural Parade

The Asheville High School marching band has been selected from nearly 3,000 applicants as one of the groups that will march at the Inaugural Parade marking the start of President Barack Obama's second term.

Several dozen bands representing high schools, colleges and various groups from around the country were named in a release by the Presidential Inaugural Committee on Wednesday.

 

They will follow the traditional parade route, which heads down Pennsylvania Avenue
from 4th Street past the White House.
 
Obama and Biden will watch the parade from a reviewing stand across from Lafayette Park.
 
“The talented groups chosen to participate in the Inaugural Parade reflect the spirit, values, and diversity of our great nation,” Obama said in a release. “Vice President Biden and I are honored to have them join us in the parade.”
