Marching Bands to Compete Saturday, October 16, 9 am to 2 pm

Over 5,000 students representing 55 marching bands will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the oldest band review event in Northern California.  Making the event even more festive is that fact that this also marks the 85th birthday of the Santa Cruz High School Cardinal Regiment, hosts of the band review.

The parade route begins at 9 am at Santa Cruz High School on Walnut Avenue, concluding with a grand finish at the Boardwalk at 2 pm.  The judges’ station is on Center Street at the police station.  Near the judges’ station and along Beach Street are excellent venues to take in the spectacle.

An event of this scale requires an army of volunteers. If you are able to help, please contact band director Christina Latham.
