Harrison Central Marching band hosting ‘Field of Dreams’ fundraiser
Having recently competed in the MHSAA Marching Band Championships and making finals for the first time since 2014, the Harrison Central High School Band is capping off the marching season with a little bit of fall fun.
This Saturday, Harrison Central’s band is hosting a fall festival fundraiser ‘Field of Dreams.’ The family-friendly event begins at 2 p.m. at Harrison Central’s football field and will feature a chili cook-off, cake walk, face painting, dunk tank, and a performance of the band’s 2021 show “Ding!” for the last time.
While the festival is raising money for the band and their 2022 trip to Washington, D.C. to perform in the National Independence Day Parade, it’s also a time for band members to celebrate a successful marching season. Harrison Central Director of Bands Dell Trotter said, “It’s just evolved over the years into what’s more now a festival. It’s a fall festival. It has elements you would see at any other fall festival. It also has elements of music–it also a day for the kids to celebrate the end of the marching band season because they work so hard all year long.”
Tickets are $5 and can be purchased the day of.
