Everyone loves a parade... unless you're wearing a nine pound polyester band uniform. Marching in the Sheridan parades (fair parade, homecoming, etc.) was actually fun, but when it was hot - boy was it hot! Block formation and "gate swings" were some of the first marching maneuvers that all band members learned back in the 6th grade on the parking lot behind McKenzie Hall.
Another thing we learned... when lining up the participants in a parade, always put the marching band IN FRONT OF THE HORSES.
