Hawthorne Caballeros: Drum and Bugle Corps

Commemorates the work of the Hawthorne American Legion Post No.199 Caballeros Senior Drum and Bugle Corps. The Caballeros include a Competing Corps of 90 to 100 musicians and 30 to 40 color guard members, an Alumni Corps of approximately 120 members, and an Alumni Chorus. The Competing Corps competes in the summer; the rest of the year it marches in parades and performs in concerts, as does the Alumni Corps. Since the Caballeros began competing in 1946 they have won many titles and honors.
