Macy’s Family, Friends & Alumni Package
Thanksgiving Week 2024
If you’ve followed the band around to perform on football fields – this is an elevated experience you won’t want to miss! Lincoln Band families, friends, fans and alumni are invited to join us for a special trip to create some memorable experiences in New York City.
You’ll watch our marching band perform in the 2024 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, enjoy a holiday meal aboard a yacht with our students and much more! This 5-day, 4-night experience takes place Monday, November 25 until Friday, November 29, 2024. You can book this trip from anywhere in the US!
Family & Friends Package Options
We’re excited to partner with a longtime, trusted tour provider in NYC student travel experiences, Students on Broadway. (The SDSU marching band partnered with the same company for a memorable Macy’s experience.) There are no hard deadlines yet, but we need to start understanding interest. And the earlier you book and plan ahead, the easier it is to spread out installment payments.
Dates: Monday, November 25 until Friday, November 29, 2024 with option to add more days
Family, Friends & Alumni pay for the full amount of their trip package. The Band Parents Association is involved in partnering with the tour operator, Students on Broadway, which organizes both the student trip and the optional Family, Friends and Alumni Package. Some of the itinerary includes interaction and events with the band members. Others are separate.
