The Optimists Alumni have had a full schedule this year and the Fall/Christmas season is no exception.
Recently, the group performed at the St.Catherine's Grape & Wine Festival Parade, keeping the name "Optimists" traditionally embedded in this annual trend as their historic Toronto Optimists Drum & Bugle Corps did so many years ago.
Also a regular event, the Optimists Alumni performed in the Kitchener Oktoberfest Thanksgiving parade, positioned as the second band at the front of the parade. You can view their performance in our Gallery here.
Have a look at their huge upcoming Santa Claus parade schedule in the events on our site here.
