|Almost every year John West participates with the Ocean Park band in the July 4th parade. Here is
John in the 3rd row playing his tenor sax. "We played 3 pieces in rotation - Grand Old Flag, Yankee Doodle Dandy, and Bill Bailey. The parade route was a little over a mile. After the parade we do a short outdoor concert where the music is interspersed with awards to families and kids for things like the Sand Castle Contest, Bicycle Decorating, etc. You can see some of the bicycles behind the band in the photo. It's all part of their July 4 celebration. It is great fun."
