The Bernardo Yorba first period Marching Band, Color Guard, and Drum Major, Kat  Abramovich  have been awarded the first place trophy for the Tustin Tiller Day Parade on Saturday October 3. The Marching Band competed against high school bands.

Mrs. Watson said, “You guys did an amazing job.” In the sport of marching the placing for winners is different for other sports. It goes sweepstakes (the highest place anyone could get), first place, second place, and so on; and bands get points to determine their placing, Bernardo scored 89.4 points overall.

They’ve been rehearsing with second period Marching Band for the past four to five weeks; and all of that practicing has payed off for them. BYMS Marching Band was the only middle school band in a parade made mostly made up of high schools. They got the first place trophy in band,color guard, and for drum major , Kat  Abramovich.

The Tustin Tiller Days Festival & Parade has been an annual event ever since 1957. The three days of celebrating Orange County’s rich agricultural history. This event also provides an opportunity for local nonprofit to promote their cause, and make some much needed funds. Since the first Tustin Tiller Day many local civic organizations, schools, churches, and youth groups have made thousands of dollars benefit their communities.
