Check it out! About two weeks ago, I got to participate in the parade of a lifetime. My marching band, Alamo City Community Marching Band, was the featured band in the Fiesta Flambeau parade, a night parade that weaves 2.6 miles through the city. This also happened to be the Saturday before my sermon, so you know, why not go big in one weekend, right? It was extremely tiring, but when we turned the corner to start the parade, the hundreds of people packed into the streets made it all worth it. The confetti canons going off every block or so, the people singing along to our band as we played “Deep in the Heart of Texas”. Crazy. Awesome. There was no lull in that parade. And I’m so glad I got to be a part of it.
And now you get to be a part of it too! This video (click the link below) shows a segment of the parade and my band shows up about halfway through, following the Grand Marshall (hilarious). And if you look to the far right of your screen in the snare drum line, you’ll see me! Kickin’ it on that snare like I do.
Check out the sights and sounds as floats and marching bands delight hundreds of thousands of people in downtown San Antonio for the Fiesta Flambeau Night Parade.
