You are on your own to walk back to the high school, walk home, or get a ride from Kaysville Elementary after the parade.
PARADE ATTIRE: Summer Band parade attire for winds and percussion is your black shorts, your band t-shirt, black socks (we will provide), and dinkles. Girls need to have hair pulled back into a ponytail. We will provide a bow for you to wear in your hair. NO watches, bracelets, or dangling earrings please!
COME HYDRATED! Parades can get long and hot. Make sure you drink plenty of water the day before and the morning of the parade.

We will warm up there and then walk to 100 east to our line up position. The parade begins at 10:00. We should finish by 11:00. Students are on their own to get back to cars parked at the church or get a ride from the end of the parade.
