I took Tammi to Millennium Park on her first day in Chicago. I had just finished showing her the Bean when we heard music coming from somewhere. I didn’t know what was going on and just ignored it until I noticed it was getting louder. I turned around and Tammi was already going to see what it was.

When I caught up with her, there was a big old marching band doing their thing. I had never seen anything like it before. None of the schools I’ve attended had a band, so this was a totally surreal experience.
Tammi ran over and asked the leader about what it was all about. They were the Julian High School Marching Band. Their band was the only band in the region to be selected for an out of state competition., so they decided to practice downtown for the tourists in the park.
