Thousands turn out for “La Grande Parade de Paris,” led by RCC!

What a sight! Nearly 1 million Parisians and other European and USA tourists turned up on the Champs~Elysees, to bring in the new year, and leading the parade was the Riverside City College “All Star” Band!  The 1.5 parade route, from the Place de Concord to the Arc di Triomphe, held on the most famous boulevard in the world, was overrun with revelers and well-wishers, many who shouted “thank you for being here” and “God Bless America” as the 225-member “Marching Tigers” made their way up – and then back.
