Making History in New York City

This year, Pride of the Mountains became one of the only bands in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade history to perform twice in five years. Over 500 Catamounts made the trip from Cullowhee to New York City to march in the parade. Their incredible journey has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all the students, staff, family and alumni who were involved. Follow their journey...
