It wouldn’t be a parade without a marching band and Borrego is lucky enough to have five of the best in the area coming out to support the town and entertain the residents. March, cheer and sing along as they are bound to give an amazing performance.

The Clairemont High Marching Band is made up of students from 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students.

We are under the direction of Don Kuhli, Ashley Guymon Drum Major, Taylor Covington Assistant Drum Major, and Elizabeth Cisneros Co-Drum Major.
