Seniors parade through the hallways to the beat of the band’s drums, dressed as BHS Superfans, superheroes, turkeys and more. Students rush out of their second block classes to cheer on BHS’ second annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

“I think it’s super great that BHS has a tradition now at Macy’s,” Myriam Huener ‘24 said. “The parade is a great way for us to really embrace our Macy’s identity and create community around it.”

The surprise parade was an exciting break from classes and was a great send off to November break. 

“I was hyped up. I heard it down the hallway. I was like, ‘what’s happening?’ I went out, and it’s a parade. It was fire. I was excited,” Khalil Philie ‘25 said.

The event was brought back this year by BHS’ Student Government to carry out the tradition created last year by the class of 2022. With the absence of an assembly hall, BHS is left with fewer opportunities to raise school spirit, which makes events like the parade important to many students.

“It helps bring the community together more because we really don’t get a lot of community building events besides sports,” Philie said. “So I think it was good for school spirit.”

The annual parade also gives younger students a tradition to look forward to. 

“I’m not gonna hold anything back next year,” Norah Miller ‘24 said. “My plan is to go absolutely wild… we will be doing that.”
