What a great day out for the band and for the many people who came to watch! Full credit to the Corowa Rotary Club for a very well organised event. Temperatures were down on previous years – a bare 35C! Almost freezing for a Federation Festival 🙂
AWPD stepped out proudly in the street march and then played on the mound with Wangaratta / Goulburn Valley Pipe Bands and the 5th/6th Battalion Royal Victorian Regiment Pipe Band. Many thanks are owed to the Pipe Majors and officers of these bands for their help in organising the impromptu massed band performances.
