Livermore's Granada High leads 50 school bands in colorful, musical march on Main Street

Foothill marks 35th year of hosting marching, field show competition in Pleasanton

Granada High School's marching band was a leading performer for hundreds who watched the 35th annual Foothill Band Review on Main Street Saturday and later the field show competition at Foothill's stadium.

The Granada Matadors' marching band was among 50 middle school and high school bands from throughout Northern California and Nevada that participated in the parade and the field show.

The Foothill band marched in the middle of the parade but, as the host school, did not participate in the competition. Because the review was the same day as its school homecoming, Amador Valley High's marching band did not participate in the parade or field competition.

The bands marched from the Amador High campus to Angela Street. Field show competition took place late Saturday afternoon and evening.

They took the day off due to their Homecoming that evening.

Ahh, it is a wonderful day to behold when all the teams are in town and the sights and sounds are intermingling up and down main street. I LOVE this event. Our smiles are bursting as the bands go by, the participants so practiced and proud, shiny and at attention.

Thanks to all who helped put it together and all who attended, making it yet another terrific day.
