Join us for an exciting musical parade as 55 Northern California high school and junior high school marching bands compete next to the iconic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in the ONLY band review with warm sand, cool surf, and hot rides!
Marching bands will be judged in categories such as music, showmanship, and marching.
Check back in April for details and online registration for the 2023 event.

The entire parade route is in the area adjacent to the Boardwalk with easy bus drop-off.
Line of March
