...Majorette Festival...

...I was going to post about Majorette Festival as soon as we got home... ...but that was at 11:30 PM...on a school night...
...we got to the field at a few minutes after 5:00...while they were still setting up...it had been raining and everything was wet and chilly...and then we got to sit in the stands for 6 hours...
...but of course it was all worth it...as our band marched in...
...and put their props on the field...this was new to me...I'd never been to a band competition where there were props...
...then as they took the field in their perfect columns...
...silver and burgundy balloons were released by their fans with lots of cheers and noise making...
...watching them float away in the clearing evening sky...
...of course the band did their show perfectly...
...as the balloons continued to float away...
...their famous zigzag line...
...a perfect ending to another perfect show...

...a little clip for the grandmas to enjoy...
...then the show finale...an exhibition by the Marshall Thundering Herd...
...all 300+ of them...they really fill up a football field...
video
...and they really fill up the stadium with sound as well...
...our band back on the field standing at attention for the presentation of the awards...
...our majorette was crowned Miss Kanawha Majorette 2012...it was sort of like a beauty pageant...
...and our band still at attention as the other bands leave the field...
...they won...
...Band Marching...
...Band Playing...
and ...Overall Effect...

...so I guess the cold wet late night was probably worth it...

...have a lovely day!...

  2. How cool! Our high school was too small for a marching band but I always thought I would have loved that.
