The Western Wayne School District will host a cavalcade of bands on the evening of Thursday, Oct. 14, at our football stadium. A total of eight schools will participate including: Lakeland, West Scranton, Valley View, Delaware Valley, North Pocono, Northwest Area, Dunmore, and, of course, Western Wayne will close out the show.
“It is exciting to get to perform in a cavalcade after not being able to do them last year [because of COVID],” senior drum major Hudson Malinowski explained. “I hope everyone comes out to enjoy our show!”
The public may start arriving at the stadium as early as 5:45 p.m. Lakeland will be the first school to perform starting at 6:30 p.m. with the National Anthem being played shortly beforehand.
Admission is $3 for adults, $1 for children under 12 and senior citizens, or free with the donation of pet food or supplies at the gate. All donations will be given to the “C Alley Cats of Lake Wallenpaupack” organization. C Alley Cats provides low cost spay/ neuter services, provides adoption and foster programs, and gives support to caregivers of medically challenged cats.
In addition, concessions will be sold with all proceeds benefiting Western Wayne band and color guard students.
Western Wayne’s field show this season is “A Full Course Meal” with the selections of “I’d Like to Buy the World a Coke,” “ Cheeseburger in Paradise,” Chicken Dance,” and “I Want Candy.” Come out and enjoy the hard work of all of the local school bands participating in this event.
