Here is the opening parade. The Butterbeer Brooers appear at 4:52.

Update:  At the end of the tournament on Sunday night, Vassar placed 4th out of 46 teams. According to the official Quidditch World Cup Twitter account, "Pitt beat Vassar in one of the best games in Quiddtich history. Vassar must be commended for theatrical play and fantastic sportsmanship!" 

Update #2: Vassar Quidditch tweets: "Thanks to the crowd for their support in our antics, spells, and general tomfoolery - it was fun!"
