Summer Parades

Congratulations to our Royal Regiment for receiving First place at their first performance at the Redwood City July 4th parade! It was a blast watching them play and march through Downtown Redwood City. Additionally, the cadets also performed extremely well, coming in second place, capturing the hearts of many audience members.

Our Royal Regiment also performed at the Salinas Colmo del Rodeo parade on Saturday, July 13th. The regiment magnificently marched down Main Street in downtown Salinas, giving spectators an unforgettable performance!



Cadet Program

Our bi-annual Cadet Regiment program is well underway for the summer season! This program is designed for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who would like to learn how to march in a marching band. The cadets most recently performed at the Redwood City July 4th parade alongside our Royal Regiment.

The Cadet Regiment also performed with the Royal Regiment at the Salias Colmo del Rodeo parade on July 13th. The regiment’s performance wow-ed the entire crowd with an amazing night time performance.
