Richfield Parade with the Warchix, United Sound, and Wall of Sound
The Warchix, Wall of Sound and United Sound represented Germantown in the Richfield Days Parade on Sunday, August 29. Before the parade, the Wall of Sound and Hartford Marching Bands joined forces for some good music fun, playing several favorites. It was a gorgeous day for the first ¼ mile, then the skies opened up and the rain came down. The students did not flinch and kept on performing. It was a great showcase of talent and professionalism. Congratulations to the Germantown students on a fantastic job in a difficult situation!
