The crowds are ecstatic!


Everyone is having a good time!


The rear guard is smiling, because they are closest to the beer cart!

Leonard can't believe his good fortune to have joined the Band!


After the parade, we play a few tunes and finish off the keg. Notice
a few defectors from the Watsonville Municipal Band joining in the merriment.


The augmented band was a delight to behold.


Bill and Florence gave the Watsonville drummers a run for their money!


Barry goes for the last beer.


Ptah was in good form to the end.


Joey and Arf relax after the parade, and get ready to eat some artichokes.

Let's hear it, boys!


It's amazing what a couple of beers can do!


Here we see the happy engaged couple receiving the good wishes
of their fellow bandspersons at Mike's Baseball Bar
