Hampton University’s Marching Force shines in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – After the pirate submarine came the real pirates.

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

WAVY’s Anita Blanton, a HU alumni, was very proud.

The Marching Force was just one of nine bands selected out of more than 100 applicants. It was also the first time they performed at the parade, which was postponed last year due to the pandemic.
