The CSU Marching Band is being recognized in one of Denver's favorite annual holiday traditions, the 9NEWS Parade of Lights.

According to a news release, the marching band will participate in the parade scheduled for 8 p.m. on Friday, December 2, in Downtown Denver. (For parade route, go here.)

Over one fourth of all CSU alumni live in the Denver Metro Area, and about half of CSU freshmen are from from there, making this opportunity for the marching band to showcase their talent extra special.
