Ann Richards school band to march in 2020 Macy's Parade

An Austin marching band got a big surprise Monday when they found out they're going to New York in 2020.

Officials with Macy's visited the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders where they announced the high school's Marching Stars Band will be one of nine schools performing in the 2020 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. 

Austin ISD's Fine Arts department made the announcement this morning via Twitter.

The band, according to the school's website, is the only all-girl competitive marching band in the nation.
