Holiday on Parade

Saturday December 8, 2018

8:30 AM to 3:00 PM

Holiday on Parade is a mandatory event for the entire Band and Color Guard. This is a big fundraiser for our band program, and it will be big fun as well! We will divide the band into two equal sized bands and march two simultaneous parade routes through SpringPark and Duck Creek. Homeowners on the parade route will have the opportunity to reserve a personal performance in front of their house for a donation of $50.00. Patrons can choose between either secular holiday tunes or Christmas carols. Students will be dressed in full uniform and wearing holiday-themed hats… they are all encouraged to decorate their instrument as long as it still plays : ) Parent volunteers will follow the band to provide holiday-themed snacks and hydration breaks! Students that live in SpringPark will be automatically listed in the SpringPark Band, and we will fill out instrumentation until both bands are equal size. Performances on the parade route will span between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM. This promises to be a special day for patrons and band students alike!
