The Grande Festival Parade was held in Burlington on Saturday, June 19, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. (www.soundofmusic.on.ca).
This is the first time that the Tian Guo Marching Band participated in the parade. Since it was a warm sunny day, many people came out to watch. Spectators showed their appreciation for the performances by smiling and clapping.
Several audience members gave positive comments. Rich and Avise from Burlington said they enjoyed the band, a Taiwanese couple stated that they were glad to see a Chinese band in the parade and one of the organizers, Mr. Don Green, praised the band and hoped they would return next year.
