Scenes from the 12th Annual Sounds of Conejo Marching Band Field Show Exhibition at Thousand Oaks High School on Saturday, September 28, 2019

The 12th Annual Sounds of Conejo marching band field show exhibition took place the night of Saturday, September 28, 2019 at Thousand Oaks High School Lancer Stadum.

There were 10 local area bands showing off their outstanding performances this year, including, Buena, Camarillo, Moorpark, Newbury Park, Oak Park, Oxnard, Oxnard, Royal, Saugus, Westlake and Thousand Oaks high schools.

This footage captures snippets of some of the bands’ performances. Every single band, large or small, did a fantastic job! Kudos to the Thousand Oaks High School Instrumental Music Department and supporting team of parents to pull off such a great event every year.

The grand finale included all 10 bands on the field at the same time, along with fantastic color guards (flag and dance sections) of the respective bands. What a fun evening on this beautiful, crisp early fall night in the Conejo Valley.

Nice job, Oxnard HS Marching Band!

Forty-Seven Things to Do In Thousand Oaks

The City of Thousand Oaks was incorporated on September 29, 1964. Most of Newbury Park was annexed by the city in the 1960s/1970s. Casa Conejo, Newbury Park's first planned community built in the early 1960s and the Lynn Ranch area of Thousand Oaks are unincorporated areas of Ventura County that technically are not annexed into the City of Thousand Oaks. Why that is, I'm not sure. The City of Thousand Oaks also annexed the Ventura County portions of Westlake Village in 1968 and 1972. A bit complicated, eh?

Enough history for now! Let's look at the future...like tomorrow or this coming weekend. Here are 47* things to do in the City of Thousand Oaks in random order.
