The community is invited to join the Elkhorn South High School Marching Blue and Gold on Saturday, August 17th from 9:00 a.m. – Noon for the fourth annual “Hats Off to the Band” Community Parade. 

This year the parade will start at Fire Ridge Elementary School located at 19660 Farnam Street in Elkhorn where the musicians will march through the Elk Valley, Pacific Woods & Fire Ridge neighborhoods. The band will march 2.5 miles and will perform along the route many recognizable tunes including the UNL Chant, Stars and Stripes Forever, Sweet Caroline, Crazy Train, and more! 

Supporters can pre-purchase “lawn concerts” where they choose 1 or 2 songs from the band’s setlist that will be performed in front of their own home.  Supporters who do not live on the route may pre-purchase lawn concerts to be performed at 9:00 a.m. at Fire Ridge Elementary School or at an agreed-upon location along HWS Cleveland Blvd in Fire Ridge. 

Everyone in the community is welcome to line the streets and enjoy this free event.
