All Saints’ Kazoo Band

On October 27th the All Saints’ Kazoo Band stepped onto the streets of Gettysburg in the annual Halloween parade.  Their uniforms twinkled under the street lights as they marched, playing several crowd pleasing tunes.  Much applause was heard throughout the route.  On the square the musicians performed at the judge’s stand and as they paraded off at least one standing ovation was received.  The band was awarded $50/third place prize for their division.  Congratulations!
