  4. With a deep sense of sadness, The Renegades are announcing that this year, 2016, will be the Last Chinese New Parade in the forseable future. With declining participation over the last couple of years, it was decided to try and end on a hi-note. The Chinese New Year Parade has been a part of Renegades tradition since the early daze. Battling it out with St. Marys provided a competitive edge. A peticulary amazing performance of Russian Christmas Music surprised many of us. Many memories. Good Times. Good Friends. Help us make The Last Parade legendary.If you have never done this gig, now is the time. Be a Renegade for the day and help us make history. Bring your Drum Corps Kids (of any age) and give them the experience of a lifetime. A special shout out to any and all Renegade/CNY alumni. We need your help. If at all possible, come join us one more time. Put on the black gloves and play. Help us end this chapter in true Renegades style, LOUD and AWESOME. February 20, 2016 Sign up NOW!!!
