The Cal Poly Mustang Marching Band is in the thick of rehearsals ahead of next weekend's Chinese New Year Parade in San Francisco.

Their last rehearsal in San Luis Obispo took place on Sunday.

This will be the 7th time the band has performed in the 1.3 mile Chinese New Year Parade.

They will be among 15 marching bands performing in the celebration.

The band has won first place in the adult marching band category in each appearance at the parade.

Cal Poly Mustang Marching Band has more than 220 members who will be partaking in the tradition of playing some of their best postgame tunes with the UC Davis Marching Band.

The bands will perform together at the San Francisco Embarcadero before the actual parade.

There will be floats and dancers honoring the Year of the Tiger.

The iconic event will be next Saturday at 5-15 P.M. and will be live streamed at the parade's Facebook page.
