What better way to celebrate the holiday season than with the Dakota Cougar High School Marching Band!

Director Risa Hsu is leading the group of 120 students from Macomb, Michigan.

The Marching Band proudly performs at Dakota varsity home football games, competes in the Scholastic Marching Band circuit, and can be seen in parades throughout the Metro Detroit area, including in the Richmond Good Old Days Parade.

The band consistently earns first division ratings at the MSBOA marching band festival. The band performed at Chicago Symphony Hall in April of 2011, and they will be performing at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, FL in April of 2012.

The Dakota Cougar High School Marching Band will be performing "Celebrate" by Kool and the Gang at America's Thanksgiving Parade.
