KUSA – The Legacy High School Lightning Marching Band will be going to the 2015 Rose Parade. Pasadena Tournament of Roses president Richard Chinen extended the formal invitation Friday, while presenting the official parade flag during a pep rally at Legacy high School.

The band will be the only marching band to represent Colorado at the 2015 Rose Parade. This will be the 126 annual Rose Parade taking place on January 1, 2015.

The band will be required to raise all the necessary funds for travel and accommodations.
