UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- The Marching Illini will be stepping into a big spotlight next fall. For the first time ever, the band will perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Out of 175 bands which applied, the Illini will be one of ten playing in New York in 2015. More than 3 million people will see the parade live. 50 million will watch it on TV.
