At Ballou High, they went over the song and got their uniforms in order. It was with lots of anticipation that they finished up and headed to the buses. Hours later, they made it to the destination: Pennsylvania Avenue and a parade.

For any school it's special to be in an inaugural parade. For Ballou, they’ve done it twice.
