One of Bucks County’s most popular marching bands will once again be performing in a major Thanksgiving Day parade this week. Dino Ciliberti wrote about the upcoming event for the Yardley Patch.

The Pennsbury High School Marching Band will make its 39th appearance in the 6ABC Dunkin’ Thanksgiving Day Parade in Philadelphia this Thursday.

The band, affectionately known as the Long Orange Line, recently took part in a recording session for the big event and they will be featured as part of its opening production number, according to Jennifer Neill, the district’s supervisor of public relations.

The marching band is no stranger to major events. It has performed on five continents and in countless parades, including at almost all of the Disney Parks.

“Whether entertaining the crowd at a Pennsbury football game, marching in local parades, or performing in another country, this outstanding group of students, under the direction of Chris Bygott and his dedicated staff, is a strong point of pride for the district,” said Neill.

The band is one of twelve marching bands that will participate in the parade, with just three being from Pennsylvania.

The parade will start at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday.
