APD Motor Officers lead off the 2008 Festival of Bands. Over 40 bands from Southern California schools came to Arcadia yesterday to participate in the 55th Annual Festival of Bands. The bands marched from the parking lot of the Santa Anita Race Track, south on Baldwin and then east on Duarte. Judges from both the Festival and the Rose Parade were on hand for the event. The participating bands provided a great morning of music and performances.
