dressed in their uniforms, stretch, exercise and get ready for
the walk to Elmwood Park.

belts to make them visible when they act as traffic guards along

After they enter Elmwood Park,
they march up to the fieldhouse grandstand where they are
welcomed by the Master of Ceremonies.
At 10:00 AM, they line up at the
back entrance to Elmwood Park to lead the walk across town. They
will walk up Rhode Island Avenue to Orange Park, where they have
been practicing every day.

Then they march back down on
Elmwood Avenue, past Sanford Street towards Elmwood Park once
again, only this time they have a police escort and can march in
the middle of the road.
The Band plays frequently, but
the drummers carry the beat constantly, without pause, until the
end of the parade.
Back at Elmwood Park, the Band
lines up in front of the fieldhouse grandstand and puts on a
musical performance, including a special selection from the
drumline, which you can see and hear on the video below.

EOUMB Director Frederick Goode
received an "Impact Award" from BJ's for his impact on
the community. Then the Band walked back to Sanford Street,
tired, but happy for participating.
