PLACENTIA HERITAGE DAYS PARADE – RECAP

A huge thank you to all of our volunteers who helped our group of over 100 students perform at the parade on Saturday. I logged about 7 miles at the parade, I am certain the students did about the same. This was our first parade as a full marching band and colorguard and the kids sounded and looked great! Our next performance is Wednesday, November 1st at the annual PYLUSD Band Pageant.

Band Review Recap:

Band: 4th place

Colorguard: 2nd place

Drum Major: 5th place
