Marching Band Season

Marching Band Season by Luna McCarthy

May to September seems to be marching band season, with all the schools preparing for the climax of the (marching band) year, Independence Day, on Sept 15. Above is one of Xela’s many marching bands, rushing off to a rehearsal or a presentation early one morning. I’m not sure where they were going, but I could clearly hear the bandleader (in the right, wearing the vest) yelling for all the students to get a move on. Considering many of them were hauling large instruments, they certainly had a task ahead of them!
