I was very disappointed in the Veteran's Day Parade this past Saturday in Bend. It may be one of the biggest in Oregon, but it was lacking in the music department! Just three bands for the entire parade? Where are the local high school bands? Where are the Armed Forces bands? Where are some local bands (drum and bugle corps, for instance)? It was nice to see how many people participated in the parade, but musically it was too quiet. Too bad.
