BALTIMORE, Md.- The streets of Baltimore were alive with pride for the city's world champion Ravens Tuesday. Leading the way for the team's victory parade were the Marching Ravens, including some band members from Delmarva. WBOC followed them on their celebratory journey.

"We are the band of the fans," noted band president John Ziemann.

It is a band of more than 100 members, with a history dating back to 1947. 

And it may only be Wicomico County resident Jessica Strange's first year with the Marching Ravens, but she has fully embraced that legacy and said she couldn't be more excited to be a player in her team's victory parade. 

"I get to play with everybody again today, and it's going to be a lot of fun to walk through Baltimore with some of the most amazing people in the world," she told us prior to the start of the parade.

It was an early morning for Jessica and her fellow Delmarva band mates. We caught up with them before they assumed their role as parade leaders, down the streets of Baltimore. 

"The excitement's starting to build up a bit," explained band member Dukinson Appolon. "I can't wait to see how it's like." 

"There are a lot of important things in this city and I'm glad that football is one of them, and I get to be a part of it," added Jessica's boyfriend and band mate, John Fegan.

Their meeting point was a familiar one: M&T Bank Stadium. They have played there many times before, but Tuesday, as they warmed up their instruments before heading out on the parade route, was extra special. 

"They're a wonderful group," shared Ziemann. "Volunteers. A lot of them took off from work and school just to be here today and like I said, that's the spirit of Baltimore, that's Baltimore football spirit." 

From start to finish, it was certainly a day the fans, and the band, will never forget.
