Alumni Weekend Event

October 12-14, 2017

October 12 through October 14 of this year (2017) will be the 3rd Annual KHS Marching Lions Alumni Weekend Event. This will be a great opportunity to reconnect with old friends and have an opportunity to dust off those musician and dance chops and be a part of history! The event will begin with a rehearsal on Thursday, October 12th from 6 until 7/8; we will start on the practice field and end in the band room. On Friday, October 13th, there will be an alumni barbecue at 5:30pm in the courtyard followed by participation in the football game. The alumni ensemble will perform alongside the current band members during pregame (Star Spangled Banner, Alma Mater, and Cake By the Ocean), halftime (THRILLER in honor of Friday the 13th), and potentially in the stands (as desired by each member). As this is our "Past, Present, and Future" Event as the band will be accompanied by our middle school feeders for pregame and in the stands. On Saturday, October 14th we will be hosting the 21st annual Lion's Pride Marching Competition. We will host 25+ bands from around the state as they compete for the coveted Brent and Cheri Sleeper Grand Champion trophy. The current Marching Lions will also perform an exhibition. We invite all to attend every event!! Registration includes a Commemorative t-shirt, admission to the game, a ticket for the barbecue, and admission to Lion's Pride.
