Seneca Valley Marching Band Crowned Grand Champions

Michala McCullough, Editor in Chief

This past weekend the Seneca Valley Roarin Raider Marching Band traveled to Louisville, Kentucky to compete in the 2013 Republic Bank Pegasus Parade.

The marching band came away as the grand champions of the parade for the second time. This family-friendly annual event showcases some of the nation’s finest marching bands and equestrian units, along with inflatable characters and colorful floats that were designed and decorated to reflect the 2013 theme, “Now, That’s Entertainment!”

Led by the “Peggy Bank” inflatable Pegasus balloon, the parade marches west on Broadway for 17 blocks and lasts approximately two hours.

After the parade the students continued their trip by going to the Cincinnati Zoo, the Great Wolf Lodge Indoor Water Park, and King’s Island Amusement Park.
