Swain High School’s Marching Maroon Devils have officially been accepted to march in the National Independence Day Parade on July 4, 2014 in Washington D.C

Marching bands that attend must be nominated and go through an application process once the nomination is received. Parade organizers want representation from all across the country and from schools of all sizes.
