    Do you think ONE of them could show up for the 4th of July parade? Not one marching band last year.

      Unfortunately, because the parade is in the summer it is nearly impossible for most high schools to get enough participants or their directors to participate. The rules around student participation without district staff, especially in Everett are extremely complicated. Also, many of the students that participate in Marching Band are not available during the summer due to commitments to either higher level marching programs (like DCI Drum Corps) or various music camps, etc.

    Unfortunately, a lot of the cities and organizations don’t want marching bands for their parades anymore.
