In the description for this photo it says:
The benefits of having a marching band in a town are many and varied, keeping young people active, developing an appreciation of music, giving essential life skills etc.

    • Indeed. Some people have saved their spots in my town since Sunday. I don’t think that’s fair, but I’m not going to start a dispute.

  1. An accordion marching band! How unique. Great find. I wish I’d thought to include a picture of the kazoo marching band I once participated in. I’d forgotten all about it until I saw your photo of the accordion band. What a kick! 🙂

  2. A neat selection of uniform styles. I’ve just returned from a holiday in Ireland and Northern Ireland where I spotted posters for a parade by an accordion band. It’s an ensemble that’s fairly common there.
