The Fergus Falls High School marching band was invited to play in the 57th Inaugural Parade on Jan 21. 2013.

The Associated Press says Fergus Falls was selected out of more than 2,800 groups that applied. The high school also performed during the inaugural festivities of 2009.

The parade runs down Pennsylvania Avenue past the White House where President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and their families will be watching.

Here's a low-quality video of the band's performance of "Yankee Doodle Dandy" in the 2009 Inaugural Parade.
