Saturday- Pensacola Christmas Parade, call time is 3:30p (DETAILS BELOW!)
Pensacola Christmas Parade, Saturday December 10th
This is a mandatory performance for all marching band members
Students will need to find their own transportation to and from downtown Pensacola
Call time in the Blue Wahoos Stadium Parking lot is 3:30p
Drivers are HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to leave Pace no later than 2:45p - many roads downtown will be closed, and traffic will be an issue.
We would suggest taking 110 South, and getting off at the Cervantes exit. Turn right on Cervantes Street. Your next turn is left onto A Street. Take A Street all the way to Main Street and turn left (this intersection is in front of Joe Pattis Seafood). Turn right into the Blue Wahoos Stadium parking lot.
Students will be responsible for transporting their Instrument AND marching band shoes/gloves.
Tubas, battery percussion, and patriot uniforms will be transported on the band trailer.
Students will change into their patriot uniform as soon as they arrive in the parking lot.
Students are encouraged to decorate their instrument with lights and to wear a “festive” Santa hat, antlers, etc.
The parade steps off at 5:30p - we will most likely step off between 5:45-6:00p
At the conclusion of the parade, we will walk to the parking lot to change out of uniforms - once changed, students will be dismissed. This will probably be around 7:30p.
