Citrus Parade : The Spartans from Michigan

Thousands of people came to Orlando this week to witnessed the Capital One Bowl and today the Spartans played against Bulldog of Georgia. Sad to note that Spartans lost the game 24-12. Better luck next time. The game was held at Citrus Bowl Stadium
This is the famous Spartan mascot. Meet Sparty, the Spartan Warrior.
Sparty appears as a foam rubber mascot with an oversize head. The mascot costume, worn by an anonymous student, appears at most university sporting, alumni, and fund raising events.Founded in 1870 as a 10-member student group, the 300-member SMB has grown into one of the premier college bands in the US.
The band has played for five U.S. Presidents and performed at four Rose Bowls, two World Fairs and one World Series. Here they are now.
The Spartan Marching Band with over 300 members. Well disciplined members despite of the heat of the sun.
The Spartan Marching Band enjoys a long standing tradition of traveling to bowl games. There is no audition required for band members, all members are required to participate in the travel.
Membership in the Spartan Marching Band requires a serious time commitment. Some weeks require over 20 hours of rehearsal and performances. No wonder that they were really awesome to see during this parade. The guys lifting the women like that. What a tremendous effort.
