A Grand Day in Pasadena!
They nailed it! The UMass Minuteman Marching Band’s appearance in the 129th Rose Parade is now a part of the band’s history!
They looked sharp in their new uniforms and sounded great as they played Katie Perry’s “Firework” for more than 700,000 spectators in-person and more than 44 million television viewers. And they nailed the tricky 110-degree turn onto Colorado Boulevard.
