For the 13th consecutive year, the Marching Warriors of Bishop Noll Institute will represent Northwest Indiana, Hammond and the Bishop Noll community in the Chicago Thanksgiving Parade. 

The band will be number 84 of the 168 units in the parade, which is an invitation only parade. The Marching Warriors have twice been named Best Band of the Parade. They will be performing “Angels on Parade” based on the ancient hymn “Angels We Have Heard on High,” which some historians say dates back as far as 2,000 years. 

The parade will be live streamed on Pluto TV throughout the country and broadcast live in Chicagoland on the CW26. The parade begins at 8 a.m and will proceed down State Street from Balboa to Randolph. The Chicago Thanksgiving Parade is the second most viewed parade in the country after the New YorkCity Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The Bishop Noll musicians are also preparing for a Christmas concert next month. The BNI Christmas Concert will take place at 7 p.m. Dec. 16 in the BNI auditorium.
