Welcome to the 2017-18 school year. We can’t wait to see everyone back for another amazing year of band. There is lots to do in the next week as we deal with final construction for our new facilities in both buildings. If you are in need of volunteer hours or would just like to help out there will be plenty of opportunities in the near future.
Make sure to check our calendar for current pep band and concert dates!
Lets all have a great first week of school!
We are looking forward to the Lake Waconia Band Festival Saturday June 17th at 6:00 pm.
This year we will have 17 bands marching down main street!
This “bands only” parade competition is on of the highlights of their summer marching season.
Top talented bands are competing this year which promises to be an evening of fun and entertainment!
The parade begins at 6:00pm at City Square Park and proceeds along Main Street, Waconia. An awards ceremony is held at Bayview Elementary immediately following the parade.
