Calgary’s Random Marching Band

Bring an instrument — any instrument — the weirder the better! (you just need to be able to lift it and move it, so church pipe organs may be problematic ;-) Dress up in uniform — whatever that might mean in your world: school band uniform, cheerleading, tuxedo, gorilla suit, sports mascot, mime, whatever… Hats and gloves recommended. Bonus points for coming dressed in mostly one colour. Baton twirlers also welcome! Absolutely no talent or experience required! (Yes, you can still participate if you do actually have some musical talent or skill.) This is intended to be an all-ages, family-friendly, event, so bring the kids (and maybe some ear-plugs to protect their sensitive little ears ;-) LOCATION We’ll be starting and ending at Eau Claire Plaza. That’s between the YMCA and the Eau Claire Mall, south of Prince’s Island, just off 3 Street SW. We’ll be marching a loop in the area. The route will be fully wheelchair accessible (which would also be handy for rolling instruments like pianos ;-) Inspired by The Urban Prankster Network.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
