Days of '47 Youth Parade

We made it to the last parade of the season!  The band enjoyed this parade and even joined with the other bands in the parade for a little jam session before everyone stepped off.  It was a great way to establish friendships with the other bands.

Draper Days

In spite of the heat and loooooong wait, our Marching Grizzlies once again put on a great show at the Draper Days parade. (Sorry there are no actual marching pictures.  The photographer was put on banner duty today.)

Happy 4th of July!

The Grizzly Band came out in full force during the West Jordan 4th of July parade.  It was fun to have some of our Grizzly Band Alumni join us, too!

Lookin' good, Grizzlies!

Summer Update

Although there are still 3 parades after tomorrow, there will be no more summer practices for wind players.  Color Guard and Drum Line may have practices.  Please talk to your coaches for more details.

The parades are:
July 15:  Draper Days
July 18:  Parade Preview
July 22:  Children's Parade

Information will be coming for each parade as we get it.  Right now, we need to get a count of who is going to Lagoon after the Parade Preview on July 18th so we can get enough discount vouchers.  Lagoon is an optional activity.  However, since those going to Lagoon will leave straight from that parade, those not going will need to have transportation home from the South Towne Expo.  Please sign up on the Lagoon Interest form here.  You'll have two choices when you sign up:

1.  Need discount voucher
2.  Have season tickets, do not need voucher

The kids will receive their vouchers after the Parade Preview to take with them to purchase their own tickets when they get to Lagoon.
