Mustang Band Awarded First Place in Chinese New year Parade for Fourth Year in a Row

The Cal Poly Mustang Band made its fourth appearance in the San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade on Feb. 11, and for the fourth time was awarded first place in the adult marching bands category! The group performed for 1.5 million attendees along the parade route and was featured at the start of the KTSU live broadcast. Prior to the parade, the band joined the UC Davis Band in a public concert at the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero. Among the many Cal Poly alumni and parents in attendance, one band parent said, “I cannot express in words how thoroughly I enjoyed it. While my wife and I also enjoyed the band’s performance during the Chinese New Year's parade, it was great to be out in the clean air and the sunshine by the Ferry Building watching them perform in conjunction with the UC Davis band.”
