YOU'RE INVITED: Marching Giants Community Show

Posted on Aug. 21 2017 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
News Blog Category - News Come out and see the Marching Giants' 2017 show, Changing a Nation, for FREE right here at Marion High School! This year's show is inspired by the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.

All other opportunities to see this show involve an admission price (either at a home football game or at a marching competition around the state). But every year, the Marching Giants put on a special performance so that the hometown crowd can watch and enjoy the show for free.

We hope to see you at Dick Lootens Stadium at MHS at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 26. (The performance will move inside if the weather is bad.)
