Procession of the Species 2014

Seamus swears that it has never rained during the Procession, but as we've learned from the stock market, past performance is no guarantee of the future.  This year, the band went as a field of flowers, and were generously watered by the sky.

What a lovely bouquet!

Alexis's (& Aleteia's & Andy's) 50th Birthday Par-TAY!

Alexis (from the Carnival Band) knows tthere's no better way to spend your 50th birthday party than with two marching bands.  So she invited ARA up to Vancouver B.C. for a real shin-dig.  What a joy to play with our sister HONK band.

Carnies in action!

What a fabulous dance-y crowd!
