The Farmington Tiger Marching Band revealed their much-anticipated new uniforms on Saturday. The band's performance in the Dew Days Parade was especially exciting for the band, as the ensemble's previous uniforms had been in use for 24 years.

"We really have to thank the community, our alumni, as well as the families of our current band students, who all joined together to make this happen," said Holmes. "We are so proud."

Fundraising for the new uniforms began about two years ago, when Marching Band Director Erin Holmes recruited several parent volunteers to help raise funds and brainstorm design options. Not only did the band raise the necessary funds - nearly $70,000 in total - it resulted in the formation of the Farmington Tiger Band Boosters, which now supports a wide variety of band activities through fundraising and volunteerism. For example, the group's next big event is the Tiger Scramble, a golf tournament at Fountain Valley Golf Club on July 28.
