Chil-E Fest 2019

by Maria on July 5th, 2019

Last year, the Chil-E Fest occurred during a heat wave. On the blacktop the temperature was literally 100 degrees. This year, the temperature was only in the upper 80s. That's still hot, but there was quite a bit of cloud cover, so most of the time we felt like we were marching in the shade.
We marched with our friends in the Chili Fire Department. Thankfully, they had plenty of bottled water to share with all of us.

Theresa was decked out in red, white and blue headband and flag earrings. She also attached a bunting to the front of her bells. Margaret was wearing red, white and blue beads.

For woodwinds, we had Irene on piccolo, Kim on clarinet, and Margaret on alto sax. For brass we had Cindy playing trumpet parts on alto sax, Scott M. on trombone and Maria on sousaphone. For percussion, we had Steve on snare drum, Andy on bass drum and Theresa on bells.

Our next event is the Hilton FD parade on Thursday. See you there!
