“The parade was definitely the BEST PART OF THE TRIP. I think this was set up very well not only for the students but also for the band directors. We have attended many festivals over the past few years, and I can say, without a doubt, that the National Independence Day Parade was the most well organized, stress free, friendly, safe, and enjoyable event we have had the privilege to participate in. It was an incredible experience to see all of the spectators cheering on the students as they played their hearts out. After the parade, the band members said that it was the best they had ever performed. Thank you so much for inviting us to perform and experience this incredible parade and event!”
