Eatonville Band at Valley Fair
Eatonville Band at Valley Fair

The Eatonville School Band played at the early Western Washington Fair in 1910, then called the Valley Fair. This year, the band had a special attraction, a bull. I’ll have to find out the name of the bull, as it’s still remembered as an incredibly friendly bull. As you can see, the smaller members of the band even got to ride him.

I guess it beats marching.
