The North Babylon High School Marching Band will be featured on MSG Varsity’s special “The Marching Bands,” airing on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 22 from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m.
North Babylon is one of 47 of the most talented marching band programs on Long Island in the 50th Annual Newsday Marching Band Festival.
“This year we are celebrating a 50-year heritage of a great event that has created fond memories for generations of Long Islanders," said Paul Fleishman, Vice President of Public Affairs for Newsday. “And, thanks to MSG Varsity all of the tri-state area can share in the enthusiasm, energy and pride of these outstanding high school marching bands."
Held each October at Hofstra University, the three-day Newsday Marching Band Festival is an annual exhibition presenting some of Long Island’s most talented high school marching bands. A portion of the ticket sales goes to each of the participating high school bands, as well as the Newsday Marching Band Grant program that assists Hofstra music students in their studies.
