Zia Marching Festival
We went to the 32nd annual Zia marching festival in Albuquerque last weekend. Alamogordo and Clovis have 8 wins each over the years to tie for first, alas we did not get a win this year. It was a glorious fall day and we all ended up sunburnt.
The size of bands have shrunk dramatically over the years due mostly to budget cuts. I think it is neccessary and the kids get so excited to be there. The shows have changed since I was in high school, they are alot more show now with themes and props.
