Caledonia-Mumford Hometown Holidays Parade and Concert 2016

by Maria on March 19th, 2017

This is just one event of a great weekend of crafts and performances that brighten a cold dark time of year and kick off the holiday season. It might be the shortest parade on our schedule; we only played three or four songs. To give ourselves a little more time, we marched 360 degrees around the monument. When we reached the fire hall, we circled around the Christmas tree and played until it was officially lit. It was warm enough that could stay outdoors for our concert.

Jon and Kelly's son, James, and Tracey's son, Zach, carried the banner. Tara's son, Peyton, marched right behind them with our canine unit. Attila and Petunia looked festive in matching red Christmas sweaters.

Several members of the Pullyblank family marched in tribute to Pully who died in October. His eldest daughter, Marie, wore Pully's famous Christmas plaid boxer shorts and played the jingle bells. His middle daughter, Marcia, plays clarinet and is a charter member of Kelley's Heroes. Brett, the son of Pully's youngest daughter, Brenda, wore Pully's Santa apron and reindeer antlers and carried his valve trombone.

This is the last parade of our 25th anniversary season. We'll be back in March 2017 starting with the St. Patrick's Day Parades in Rochester and Buffalo.
