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.

Important Upcoming Dates:

12/2 Music & Arts Store (Crossroads) Upgrade Instrument Sale!!

12/4 All-District Honor Band Audition form and fee due

12/9 Cary Christmas Parade Noon-4:00pm (parade begins at 2:00pm)

12/14 Grand Holiday Concert 7:00pm (Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble)—featuring premiere performance of “A Great Day of Teaching and Learning” for Mr. Mares!

Please consider dropping by one of our Dewey’s Bakery Stores to do some holiday shopping and to support our band program. A huge THANK YOU to those who have given their 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!!!

“Doc”
Dr. Jerry Markoch, Director of Bands
