It’s Christmas time. The majorettes and silks pose for a picture before the 2022 Christmas parade in downtown Altoona. The band presented spectators with Santa at the end of the parade.

On Saturday, Dec. 2, the marching band will perform in the “Holiday Celebration” at the downtown Altoona Christmas parade.

“The Christmas parade is a wonderful holiday tradition in Altoona,” drumline adviser Michael Baker said. “We always have a big crowd, and I look forward to seeing everyone’s smiley faces in the daylight this year.”

The parade starts at 1:00 p.m. and features not only the marching band but the band fronts including majorettes and silks.

About the Contributor
Addisen McDonald, Reporter
My name is Addisen McDonald, and I'm a first year staff member on the Mountain Echo. Along with newspaper, I'm also a third year member of the Horseshoe yearbook staff in the position of design editor. Outside of the journalism classroom, I spend my time binge watching "Greys Anatomy," collecting fun sunglasses and practicing baton. This school year I was given the opportunity to be the AAHS feature twirler, which is leading me to achieve my dream goal of becoming a crimsonette at the University of Alabama. I'm so excited to be on staff this year and, as always, roll tide.
