I judge this event every year - it's really fun, right down on the waterfront/Embarcadero of San Diego. Full band review judging panel. Wonderful crowd support! The negative though...narrow street because of the median/island that runs down the middle. Even smaller bands are cramped. If they have an "active" auxiliary, good luck with that too. With all of that however, a nice event, not the greatest in organization but you get to be in downtown San Diego!
Since they are in town over the weekend, they should also march at the Otay Ranch Band Review in south San Diego. That's a great event! Huge "Arcadia size" street, incredible community support, awesome incentives...http://www.paradeband.org/
