The Windsor Regiment Band will be the brass band.

I'll be there with bells on... Just come looking for the RHFC band and look for the only piper with a GCS.

I'll be there as well.  I'll be in the guidon party for the opening ceremony.  There should be a large number of beverages going downrange at the armoury afterward.

Just remind her that bad guys don't get rides home. 
That being said, I'd have to dig out the inflatable love doll that lingers around HQ and leave the roof rack lit as we walked you to the door.   ;D

Well... as always, my plans have changed drastically.  Thanks to what I'm hoping is just something I ate (and not N1H1), I won't be doing much traveling... even the drive home was particularly awkward; now I know where every public bathroom is from London to Kitchener... :(

Anyway, for anyone who will be there; have fun.

It should be a good go, too bad you'll miss it.  I was on the 401 yesterday and was passing all kinds of stuff heading for Windsor; a Snowbird cockpit and a Bren gun carrier among them.  We'll have one or more for you.
