Ayr-Paris Band is known for doing many things,
but we are most recognized for marching. Every season offers events, celebrations
and reasons to hold a parade, and chances are that if it's in our area, we're in it. We have a long history in our neck of southern
Ontario with parading. We've been 'The Clown Band' at Christmas in half a dozen
parades a year for many years. We've participated in the Toronto St.
Patrick's Day Parade and the Kitchener Oktoberfest Parade so long they're
now traditions. Some of our favorites are the small community
parades -- the streets lined with people we recognize because someone in the band lives in
that town. Drumbo, Woodstock, Brantford, Paris, Ayr, Kitchener, Bright and Guelph
are all towns that know The Ayr-Paris Band from it's regular performances.
We also have performed in some very unique
locales -- a music festival in Mullingar, Ireland, a military tattoo in Kingston, Ontario and the Calgary Stampede to name a few. Below are some parade
pictures of us in action.
