Royal Oak Jingle Lighted Holiday Parade - MB call 5 p.m. This new parade starts at 6 pm and heads down Main Street. Each person in the Marching Band is required to be decorated with lights.  WEAR:  Lots of warm layers under your MB uniform and a plain red and white Santa hat instead of your shako/beret. Decorate yourself with battery lights, garland, wrapping paper, bows, etc. (check out the Dollar Store) to be as merry as possible! We will have some leftover glow sticks available to those in need, but battery lights are preferred. BRING: Your instrument (no case), lyres and flip folders with your holiday music supplied by Mr. Jensen. Stay tuned for student drop off and pick up details (later this week).
