So yesterday we got up at 5:30 to get ready for Bandfest. Half dress of course. We got on the bus by 6:45 to head out to Pasadena City College. It was so cold, we were running into the sun for warmth. We went to our warm up sight and along the way passed the BOA Honor Band. They were massive.
At our warm up sight people were lined up to go into the stadium. At first or was a small crowd then it quickly grew. They were all watching us practice. It was very exciting. Once warm up was over we went to line up to prepare to take the field. We waited a good amount of time until we could start heading out onto the field because Pasadena City College Band opened up Bandfest for the day. After then was the BOA Honor Band and then we were on. The crowd was much larger than I expected it to be. They were cheering us on as the announcer gave out facts about the band. They mentioned fundraisers we have done, as well as special things some members of the band participate in or awards or special recognitions they have gotten. It was really exciting and interesting to see what all we have accomplished. Matt started the show and the crowd went wild as the show got more exciting. The show ended with the crowd still cheering. The performance was probably my favorite because it was stress free and fun.
After we did out parade around the track we went and got into half dress to go eat some In-n-Out Burger for lunch. It was so good. Then we got changed into regular clothes to go to City Walk. We shipped around a bit then went to eat at Buca Di Peppo's. That was some good Italian food. We ended the day early to get some sleep and we were back at the hotel by 8. We had to unload the busses and went to our rooms. It was a pretty relaxed day.
