About

Members of the band will lead this year's "Parade in the Park", a parade where kids are encouraged to decorate their bike, trike, stroller, wagon or stroller to show their American Pride. The parade moves from the entrance to the Kiwanis Shelter parking lot to the lake side across from the Boat House in Bond Park, where the decorated vehicles are judged. The Band's performance is extremely informal, not so much marching as meandering along the route playing as they go. All selections are played "by ear". There is no written music and the arrangements are entirely impromptu. This recalls the picture of a parade led by a fife and drum from years ago.
