Details for 4th - 2017!!

A few details for those participating on the 4th.  

You will need:  1) Your instrument (Leave your instrument case in your car or someplace safe).  Music (if you need it).  2) Your marching band shirt.  If you don't have a shirt, stop by at the McMahon pad (on Ilg Rd. in Mani Waters) to pick one up before heading to the bus, about 10:30AM.  If you are meeting us as Boulder Jct.  let me know and I will bring a shirt for you.

Where to go:  Park somewhere in Manitowish Waters near Ilg Rd.  Our "landing pad" for the end of the parades is the McMahon driveway on Ilg Rd.  Meet at Village Market in Manitowish Waters at 10:45AM to board bus.  We will be transported to Ada St in Boulder Junction to the start the parade.  If you are meeting us in B. Jct., we should be at Ada St. by about 11:00AM.

What we do:  We will practice a bit on Ada St. before the Boulder Junction parade.  B. Jct. parade begins at Noon, should last 15 minutes or so.  The bus will pick us up at the end of the parade route (St. Annes) and shuttle us to the parade route in Manitowish Waters dropping us of around the entrance of the Discovery Center drive.  We will join the Mani Waters parade and at the end, walk back to the McMahon pad for ice cream!

There will be some water at the end of the parade and we should have access to some water at the beginning of the B Jct. parade as well.  You may need sunscreen.  Weather looks to be cooperating so far.

Let me know if you have questions or if I am missing anything!  Thanks for participating and I'm looking forward to the 4th!! CW

We are back for our 3rd year in a row!  The band will be getting back together and you can be part of our community marching band.  All ages and abilities are welcome, it only takes 7 notes to be involved!  Any instrument you can march with is welcome.  If you would like a free "old beginner" lesson, contact me, I'd be glad to help.  Our song this year is Gary Glitter's classic "Hey Song".  Music can be downloaded from this site (available shortly).  We have 2 dates for practice which can be viewed on our calendar at the left of this screen.  June 29 & July 4.  We are planning on marching the Boulder Junction parade and then ride over to Mantiowish Waters for their event.  All will culminate with ice cream at the end.  Please consider joining, it's a great time!!
