Balloon Festival Signups! Do It! Now!

It's time to get serious about Balloon Festival signups! Remember, ALL THE MONEY we get from providing monitors and soccer concessions at the great Tigard Festival of Balloons is then available to Balloon Fest volunteers to be used toward marching program fair share fees, and toward our upcoming 2018 Spring Disney Performance Tour!!

Balloon Festival is June 23, 24, and 25. We have early morning shifts (get in, get done, get on with your day), mid-day shifts (sleep in, and then come and volunteer), and nighttime shifts (do what you want during the day, then come to Balloon Fest!). And remember, you get FREE Balloon Festival Passes for volunteering!

Questions? Click here to email McKee for more information.

Balloon Festival Is Right Around the Corner!

Well, the 2017 year in band is just about finished - whew! So now, it's time to think about next year - yay!

Here are two things to keep in mind:
  • The famous Tigard Color Guard and Marching Band Try-It-Outs are Monday and Wednesday June 12 and 14, from 5 - 8 pm. No experience needed! Come and see what we're all about, and maybe YOU'LL want to join our award-winning group! Bring a friend - the more, the merrier! Location: THS Band Room.
  • The Festival of Balloons in Tigard is one of the band program's biggest fundraisers of the year. To sign up, CLICK HERE and choose what you want to do, and when. We provide security monitors for the Festival itself, and we also sell food and drink concessions during the Festival soccer tournament. This is a great way to earn funds to help out with Fair Share Fees, or to raise funds for that Spring band tour to Disneyland! And remember, an adult MAY fill a Student job, but a student MAY NOT fill and Adult job.
Yay Band!
