    Did anyone else watch this? [​IMG]

    I am proud to say that I was in the parade as part of my school's marching band. It was sooo much fun!! All of those people! Although it was a loooong and tiring walk, it was a great experience. But the bad part.......... We were aired during a commercial [​IMG] so nobody got to see us on TV. -sigh- Oh well, the good thing is we received a lot of compliments about how we were the best band, they saved the best for last, and how straight our lines were! [​IMG] I'm so proud of our band.

    If some of you guys did watch it, my band was the one wearing the Santa hats [​IMG] Our uniforms were navy blue, yellow/gold, and white. Oh, and I play the trumpet. [​IMG]

    ETA: Sorry, this was in Philidelphia, Pensylvania. [​IMG]

    Was your band one with twirlers wearing next to nothing?! I kept thinking those girls must have frostbite it was barely above freezing!!

    The band from Alabama looked like they were about to die! [​IMG]


    (honestly I don't have a good memory for uniforms or which band was which....) I was just enjoying the show! Thanks for coming!!! [​IMG]

    IKEA doesn't have a parade - Philadelphia does, but IKEA sponsored it cause Boscovs went under... more or less. [​IMG] It was weird to have it be a non-American store for such an American holiday.

    I can't remember what our twirlers (actually called Majorettes) were wearing, but I do know that their uniform looks like a one-piece bathing suit. If you remember seeing a marching band with santa hats on, that was us [​IMG] We were also in front of the giant Elmo balloon.​
