The Band Marches On

Our youngest got the opportunity to march with the combined middle school bands of Horizon and Vista at the Holland Days parade in Oak Harbor, Washington on Saturday.  This is a parade I have never been to. The parade was opened with a town crier and bell ringer. The parade included lots of people in Dutch dress complete with clogs. It was a great day for a parade with several local middle school bands. 
Chuck said he had a great time but marched half the parade with a tootsie roll stuck to his shoe.  They gave  time after the parade to visit the carnival.  The drummers acquired plastic hard hats from the group behind them - the ReStore. For the first time out as a group this season, they did well.
