Finally, two weeks of preparation paid off for the Santa Barbara Jr. High band. Last Friday, December 4th, our band participated in the Christmas parade. The parade aired last Friday, 12/4, at 6:30
88 unique floats attended this parade. The parade took place on State Street. The school’s band was 58th in line, proudly marching behind Santa Barbara High School Dons cheer and before the Santa Barbara MTD electric shuttle.
“The parade was a good length and very entertaining,” said 7th grade student, Charlie Hess. According to the students of Santa Barbara Jr. High, the band performed very well. Many SBJH students just went to support our band. “Fantastic!” 8th grade student Hailey Zheng claims. Another fun/creative entry was the Lorax float.
This was the 63rd annual downtown holiday parade. Like always the parade ended with Santa visiting, on a massive float. The parade was a blast and was fun for the entire family. Hopefully, you stopped and congratulated our band and all the other participants.
If you missed this parade don’t worry, the Milpas Parade is only a few days away. It begins December 12th 6:30 (Friday). Have a happy holiday!
