This 1950s home movie compilation captures the Beaumont High School marching band and dancers performing ahead of the homecoming game. As the crowd begins filling the stands, the band soon lines up across the width of the field, intersecting with the dancers before dispersing to make way for the homecoming court, who stand in middle of the field, showing off their mums. The latter part of the footage captures the marching band performing some years later before another game.
