A year of fundraising and hours of practice paid off for the Jackson Memorial High School Marching Jaguars with their appearance in the Tournament of Roses of Parade in Pasedena, California.

The parade capped off a whirlwind of activity on the trip that began on Friday and included performances at Disneyland and Bandfest at Pasadena City College.

The band's busy January isn't done yet; they will be marching in President Obama's inaugural parade on January 21 in Washington DC.
