Marching Mizzou Ireland Trip - Day 6 (March 20, 2016)

Today Marching Mizzou participated in the Limerick International Marching Band competition. We participated in the parade with a performance at the grand stand of the "Missouri Waltz", Jungle Beats drum cadence and "Hey Baby!" We participated in a battle of the bands style performance against the other bands. 

At the award ceremony, Marching Mizzou was awarded the "Overall Parade Champion" award. It was an incredible opportunity and we had an amazing time at the event.

Next we travelled to Bunratty Folk Park with Bunratty Castle. It was a beautiful castle and students really enjoyed exploring the various rooms.

After the castle, we drove back to Galway to our hotel for dinner. The remainder of the night was free for students to explore the city of Galway.

Tomorrow we are going to Blarney Castle for the day with our farewell dinner to end this amazing trip. We are Chicago/Columbia bound on Tuesday morning.
