Salem band to march in Washington, D.C., parade
In April 2015, the band will return to Washington, D.C., for the National Cherry Blossom Festival parade for the first time since 1968.
The 1968 parade was to be one of the first major events the storied band and color guard took part in, but instead, the band found itself on the edges of history in that historically tumultuous year.
Claussen said he recently spoke to someone who was a chaperone on that 1968 trip about the experience.
“It’s neat that we were extended the invitation and we can try to finish what they started,” said Claussen.
The details of the 2015 trip are just beginning to take shape, but Claussen said the school will use the same travel agency it has used for past trips to the Fiesta and Rose Bowls.
