The Pride of Olmsted Falls – the Bulldog marching band – grew by many smaller feet last Saturday. Preschoolers through grade 5 students marched alongside band members, with some carrying toy instruments or their own pompoms. They also got a chance to learn about various instruments on a one-on-one basis and even play them! Later, they were invited to watch the Bulldog Marching Band’s Preview Show.
The slight rain didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits as the youngsters and their parents, band parents and community members watched the more than 320 band members take the football field and perform pregame and half-time shows. Everyone enjoy the performances.
