This is the 3rd year in a row that the Tian Guo Marching Band was invited to play in the parade. The band was also given the honor of performing "O Canada" during the Opening Ceremonies. The organizer congratulated the members on their performance.
Spectators along the parade route gave the band an enthusiastic welcome. Many applauded, took movies and photos, and urged the members to play another song.
