2010 FMB Drill

Fair Parade - July 26, 2010

The first performance for the Fairbanks Marching Band will be at the annual Union County Fair parade on Monday, July 23. The parade starts at 5PM this year, so band members will need to be ready to warm up at 4:15 at the parking lot between the Marysville UMC and Veteran's Auditorium, on Sixth Street across from the courthouse.

Attire is summer uniform: Red band polo, all-black shorts, white socks, and white-ish shoes. Ladies should have their long hair in a pony tail or braid. The only visible jewelry permitted is a watch and/or your own class ring. Please leave earrings, necklaces, bracelets, etc. at home.

Percussion and sousaphones will be transported from the school via trailer. All other band members should bring their own instrument. You will then take it home with you and bring it to camp.

You will be admitted free to the fairgrounds when the parade is over, so stay as long as you like.
