Apex Christmas Parade

Dear marching band member and parent,

The purpose of this letter is to provide you with information concerning the Apex Christmas Parade this Saturday as well as several “end of calendar year” events.

APEX CHRISTMAS PARADE – Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021

3:00pm Report to ADHS

Change into full uniform/load truck
Add decorations/lights to instruments (tubas and drums may want to plan on a little extra time for lights)
3:45pm Inspection

4:00pm Depart for Apex (via activity busses)

4:25pm Arrive at drop-off point

5:00pm Parade begins (we are in the middle)

5:40pm Anticipated step-off

7:00pm Return to ADHS

The Apex Christmas Parade is somewhat unique in that it is held in the evening. Parading at night through this charming town—with all its store lights and decorations aglow—is really COOL. Our students love to march in this parade, and we hope that you will consider coming out and enjoying the atmosphere!

The parade route begins on the corner of Apex Peakway and Salem streets, passes through the downtown area, and finishes at W. Moore Street. The entire route is about ½ mile in length. Additional parade information can be found at apexrotary@gmail.com.

Special thanks!

I just wanted to take a moment to THANK YOU for such a wonderful season and for the generous gifts presented to me and my family at the Showcase. Being a career teacher has many intangible rewards—having the privilege of working with all of you is the one I cherish most!

Important Upcoming Dates:

12/6 All-District Honor Band Audition form and fee due

12/11 Cary Christmas Parade Noon-4:00pm (parade begins at 2:00pm)

12/16 Grand Holiday Concert 7:00pm (Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble)

And…

Please consider shopping (or working) at one of our Dewey’s Bakery Stores to support our band program. A huge THANK YOU to those who have given your TIME to make this fund-raiser a success. We could not run our program and serve your children without your support!

Hope to see you along the parade route cheering on our wonderful band!

We are going to be LIT!!!
