St. Petersburg, Florida -- Several Florida marching bands were among the hundreds of American high school students celebrating the New Year in London.
JP Travella High School from Coral Springs was just one of the more than 8,000 performers from 20 countries approved to march through London's streets.
The New Year's Day parade claims to have more participants than the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Travella band washed a lot of car to raise the money to march in it.
Parade organizers say the 2014 parade had one of the strongest American turnouts in recent years.
