Here’s how this works: when the band enters the field and the announcer calls our name, we need a fleet of parents in the stands cheering and going NUTS for the kids. This is all part of the competition! It sends a message to the judges that… “here comes a 1st division band!” While we have many parents already traveling with the band as volunteers, they will be down on the field helping with equipment. Come out and see what your kids have been toiling away for because trust me, the football games have just been a preview of the contest show.

Parking is free. Admission to the contest is $5.00 and that will cover entrance to both Prelims and Finals. Student performers do not need to pay to enter. Children under 6 are free. Any parent who is working down on the field should gain entrance for free. Any parent who will watch the show from the stands should expect to pay the $5.00 entry fee.
