The Fergus Falls High School Marching Band performed in its second consecutive inaugural parade on Monday in Washington, D.C.

Director Scott Kummrow said the high school band raised $68,000 to fund the trip.

The band played the same version of "Yankee Doodle Dandy" that they performed in the 2009 inaugural parade.

Kummrow said earlier that the arrangement is unusual: "What makes it unique is that a band sings the second half of the piece."
