Our final competition is Sunday, November 12 at J. Birney Crum Stadium in Allentown. Tickets will be sold directly through Cavalcade's website. I will not know our performance time or schedule until November 6th or 7th. I won't officially know our status as a Yankee band (open or A) until then either. Please plan to block out the whole day. Some years our report time to KHS has been as early as 5 am. Let's all keep out fingers crossed for a later time!
Festivus will be held on Monday, November 13th at 6:30pm in the KHS Cafeteria.
