Thanks to our friends at Pasadena Now, we have learned the 2018 Rose Parade participants. By my count there are 12 High School bands taking part in the parade including one traveling overseas from Japan.
They are as follows:
Air Academy High School Marching Band (USAF Academy, CO)
Albertville High School “Aggie” Band (Albertville, AL)
Homestead High School Mighty Mustang Marching Band (Cupertino, CA)
Kyoto Tachibana High School Green Band (Kyoto, Japan)
All District High School Honor Band (Los Angeles, CA)
Lindbergh High School “Spirit of St. Louis” Marching Band (St. Louis, MO)
Londonderry High School Marching Band & Color Guard (Londonderry, NH)
Louisburg High School Marching Wildcat Band (Louisburg, KS)
Pennsbury High School “Long Orange Line” Marching Band (Fairless Hills, PA)
Ronald Reagan High School Band (San Antonio, TX)
Santiago High School The BOSS (Bands of Santiago Sharks) (Corona, CA)
Westlake High School Marching Thunder (Saratoga Springs, UT)
Along with these schools, obviously the PAC-12 and Big Ten Conference associated school bands will march, as well as a couple military bands, and the University of Massachusetts Minuteman Marching Band.
We cannot wait for the 2017 season to get started!
