Description

This reel primarily includes black-and-white footage, along with one color scene. Most of this footage shows a men's football game between Oxnard and Santa Paula High Schools, perhaps at Santa Paula High School, and local preparations and celebrations before and after the game. The footage opens on the field's sidelines, where players and a coach from one team react to the game. The camera then surveys the substantial crowd gathered in the elevated stands above the field. A pan across the school parking lot, packed with cars and departing crowds, emphasizes the scale of the event.

Black-and-white footage of football practices on the same field follow this sequence. After this practice, girls in white dresses and small angels' wings walk in a file across the field, perhaps in preparation for a parade. The next scene shows a young marching band practicing its routine on a residential street, with craftsman homes and hills in the background. 

The next sequence is shot in color, and features a parade through the streets of Santa Paula. Servicemembers bear American flags, men in Western wear ride horses, and a local American Legion marching band performs a routine. The scene afterward captures a group portrait of a Santa Paula's American Legion band and some candid footage of the band preparing for a seated performance.
