Thanksgiving Day will be extra special for the Pittsburg High School's marching band.

The award-winning Pirates are the only high school marching band west of the Mississippi invited to perform in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

When ABC7 first reported about the band back in July, it was $80,000 short of what they needed to make the trip.

However, thanks to several different fundraising drives, they raised enough to go to New York.
