The Parade is held on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29th. The Parade begins at 10:30am.
Where is the Parade?
The Parade is held on Foothill Blvd. It begins at the corner of Foothill and Cornishon (LCUSD District Office), and ends at the corner of Foothill and Gould (Round Table Pizza).
What should your student wear?
- 7/8 students should wear their band t-shirts and dark shorts.
- 9-12 students will wear their full marching uniform, but no shakos and no gloves.
Where should I drop off my student?
- 7/8 students should be dropped off at the corner of Foothill and Cornishon at 10am. The students should go into the parking garage and look for the rest of the band. The 9-12 band will join the 7/8 students after the service in the park.
- 9-12 students will meet at the LCE playground at 8:15am. Please enter from La Canada Blvd. They will warm-up and then proceed to the park for the Memorial Service.
What about instrument cases?
Your student should ONLY bring their instrument. All cases need to be left in the car. We will not return to the start of the parade.
Where should I pick up my student?
The parade ends at the corner of Foothill and Gould, right by Round Table Pizza. Please make arrangements with your student as to where to meet them. Someone will stay at Round Table until all students are picked up.
Students are dismissed when they finish the parade. We will not know where we are in the parade (beginning, middle, end) until Monday morning.
Usually it's easiest if parents pick a spot to watch the parade towards the end of the parade route, making it easier for you to meet up with your student after they are finished.
How does my student get their instrument from school?
ALL students should take their instrument home with them on Friday afternoon. For those using school instruments, you may return them on Tuesday morning.
9-12 students should also take their marching uniform home on Friday afternoon. Please return them on Tuesday.
The traditional doughnuts and water bottles will be available for all 7/8 and 9-12 students. If you have another question, please let Sandy know. Did I forget anything?
