It has been an annual tradition to end the LHS Marching Band season with a fundraiser serving a chicken dinner, having a silent auction and performing an indoor concert. From feedback from last year's event and the continuation of the pandemic, this year the directors along with the Band Parents Association have made the decision to hold the concert again at the Sioux Falls Arena.

Yes! This tradition is vital to the success of the band and must continue!  Seriously though, we plan to have a very large circular path that allows the skippers to skip to their hearts content.

Yes! Our seniors will wear the white plumes and berets. Also, the floor level seats will be reserved for senior families.
