RICHMOND CHRISTMAS PARADE
Saturday – the parade! Here’s the itinerary:
9:20 AM – report to Monacan, change into uniform (Santa hats instead of our regular hats), load buses with your instrument/no case. Drums and tubas will go in Mr. Evans’s truck and Mrs. Mann’s van (thank you!!).
10:30 AM – arrive, unload, set in parade formation
2:00 PM – approximate return time to Monacan (this might be earlier – not sure – I’ll have kids call/text on the way back if it’s vastly different)
We are unit 75 in the parade, I believe – listed as the Chesterfield County Combined Band or something like that. The parade steps off at 10:15 AM if you’re planning to watch along Broad Street.
