Five Arizona educators are performing in the 2023 Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

If you’re waking up early Thursday to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, you may catch a glimpse of a few Arizona residents marching alongside Snoopy and Santa Claus 

Kate Menasco of Centennial High School will join Lizeth Gil, Carmela Rubino, and Bryan and Jeffrey Malone of Peoria High School as part of the Band Director’s Marching Band, which brings together band directors from across the country to perform in parades and major events.

The parade starts at 6:30 a.m. Mountain Standard Time.
