HILLIARD, Ohio (AP) -- Macy's says 13 performers from five Ohio high schools have been chosen this year to march in a student band for its annual Thanksgiving Day parade.

The Lakota West High School marching band from West Chester is on the lineup for the parade in New York City.

The company says students from all 50 states will make up the band of 185 musicians with 40 flags and dancers.

Four of the other selected students are from Hilliard Bradley High School in central Ohio, west of Columbus. Marysville and Brecksville-Broadview high schools are sending three students each. Two musicians are from Perrysburg, and one is from Grove City.
