Lake City Parade – Summerfest 2023
Rainbow City Marching Band is performing in the Grand Parade at Lake City Summerfest this year alongside our Rainbow City Color Guard and Rainbow City Drumline! This year’s theme of the Lake city parade, “At One with the Lake” also is an honor to the Duwamish people. We’re excited to be marching in this parade for the first time, though we have called Northeast Seattle our rehearsal home for 25 years. We will see you in the Lake City parade this year!
Rainbow City Marching Band and Rainbow City Color Guard are two of the performance ensembles of Rainbow City Performing Arts. They perform at various parades, festivals, and community events throughout the year, bringing joy and color to the streets. Rainbow City Marching Band plays a variety of music, from pop to classical, with a focus on fun and entertainment. Rainbow City Color Guard adds visual flair and movement to the band’s music, using flags, sabers, and dance. Together, they create a dynamic and diverse show that celebrates LGBTQIA+ pride and inclusion.
