Hampton University’s Marching Force Stars in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

HAMPTON, Va. (GOVY) — After the pirate gravy boat came the real pirates.

Hampton’s Marching Force put on a show on national television during the 2021 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which crossed the parade ground just after 10 a.m.

WAVY’s Anita Blanton, HU alumna, was very proud.

The Marching Force was just one of nine bands selected from over 100 applicants. It was also their first appearance at the parade, which was postponed last year due to the pandemic.
