NEW YORK — “TBDBITL” is getting ready for something they’ve never done before: their first-ever appearance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The Ohio State University Marching Band tweeted a reminder to everyone about the huge event.

Last year, it was announced that the band was selected to perform in the parade representing the state of Ohio. The Ohio State University Marching Band will join the parade to the call of “Let’s Have a Parade,” the iconic phrase that has signaled the start of every Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade since 1924, Ohio State said.

“TBDBITL” was chosen from more than 100 band applicants and will be one of 10 marching bands in the 92nd edition of the parade.

“The Ohio State University Marching Band is near and dear to the hearts of Buckeyes across the nation and around the world,” Ohio State President Michael V. Drake said in a release at the time. “We are thrilled that the nation will experience the hard work, focus, creativity and brilliance of our students at one of the country’s most cherished holiday celebrations.”

The band said there will be a special celebration in New York on Wednesday, November 21, a day before the parade. They are asking fellow Buckeyes and Ohio State supporters to join them.
