This year was already way cool - it's our 30th year, we've got an AWESOME director who's doing great things with the band, we've got some fun music, past directors coming back to direct songs, and our numbers are over 500 again!

Then it just got cranked up to 11!

First the Mayor proclaimed June 7th 2014 will be known as "One More Time Around Again Marching Band Day!"  That's pretty cool!

Then they blew us away and the Rose Festival President announced, "The One More Time Around Again Marching Band will be the 2014 Rose Festival Grand Marshal!!!!!"  GRAND! FREAKING! MARSHAL!!!  First time a band has EVER had this honor! 

HUGE thanks to the people watching us marching down the street.  We do this because it makes us feel amazing when we see you smiling, dancing and enjoying our crazy fun.  Without you we wouldn't be around.  :)

Here's to 30+ more!!!
