Everyone’s heard the expression ‘don’t rain on my parade.’ Somehow, the weather Gods weren’t paying attention over the holiday break as the Riverside City College “All Star” Band travelled to London and Madrid, to appear on international television, in the two most widely publicized events of their kind in the world! Yes, it was the 28th annual London New Year’s Day Parade AND the “Cabalgata de Reyes” in Madrid, Spain and it RAINED on both historic parades! To say that the “Marching Tigers” got soaked would be an understatement!

The Riverside All-Stars are made up of friends and alumni of the Marching Tigers, as well as students from high schools in and around the City of Riverside. The Riverside All-Stars have traveled as part of the Marching Tigers throughout the world, including England, Spain, France, and Scotland. In 2006, the Riverside All-Stars were a part of the Marching Tigers when they marched in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. In the winter of 2007-2008, the Riverside "All Stars" toured Italy, including Florence, Rome and Frescati, and a thrilling standstill performance at the historic Coliseum.
