ROCKFORD, Mich. (WOOD) — After weeks of preparation, the big day has come for the Rockford High School Marching Band. Students will march Monday in the Rose parade in California.

The band made it just in time to participate in the activities leading up to today. They were caught in all of the cancellations with Southwest Airlines last week but were able to find another flight to get all of the students out.

The band marched down Main Street, United States at Disneyland on Friday and performed at Bandfest in Pasadena on Saturday.

Students are scheduled to return home to West Michigan on Tuesday.
