History with the Macy's Parade
The Awesome Original Second Time Arounders Marching Band made its maiden Parade appearance in the 2008 Parade, consisting of 450 members ranging in age from 18 to 81. For their Herald Square performance, the alumni performed a "Sunshine medley", paying tribute to their home state of Florida.
Over a decade later, the band returned to the Big Apple for the 2019 Parade, now consisting of 450 members ranging in age from 16 to 79. For the Second Time Arounder's second time around the Parade route, the alumni performed Chuck Mangione's "Enchano".
