JCJC band marches in Chicago Thanksgiving parade

CHICAGO, IL - Nearly 200 student musicians from Jones County Junior College entertained a TV audience, as they marched in the McDonald's Thanksgiving Day Parade in Chicago Thursday.

It was the third appearance in the Windy City for the Maroon Typhoon Marching Band, but the first for a Turkey Day parade.

It was the band's first out-of-state trip in eight years.

The featured tune was "Jingle Bell Jam."

The band comes home Saturday.
